Magnificat. St. Luke 1:46-80 ([My Soul doth] Magnify [the Lord])


MY soul doth magnify the Lord, * and my spirit hath
rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded * the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold, from henceforth * all generations shall call
me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me; * and holy is his
And his mercy is on them that fear him * throughout all
He hath showed strength with his arm; * he hath
scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat, * and hath
exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things; * and the rich
he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant
Israel; * as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and
his seed, for ever.
