Magnificat anima mea Dominum,
et exultavit spiritus meus
in Deo salutari meo,
quia respexit humilitatem ancille sue;
ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent
quia fecit mihi magna
qui potens est
et Sanctam nomen eius,
et misericordia eius
a progenie in progenies
Fecit potentiam in brachio suo;
mente cordis sui.
Deposuit potentes de sede
et exaltavit humiles.
Esurientes implevit bonis
et divites dimisit inanes.
Suscepit Israel puerum suum
recordatus misericordie sue,
sicut locutus est ad patres nostros
Abraham et semini eius in secula.
Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper
et in secula seculorum. Amen.
Luke 1: 46b-55
My soul doth magnify the Lord,
and my spirit hath rejoiced
in God my Saviour,
for he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden;
for, behold, from henceforth all generations
shall call me blessed,
for he that is mighty
hath done to me great things
and Holy is his name,
and his mercy
is on them that that fear him
from generation to generation.
He hath shewed 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 exalted them of low degree.
He hath filled the hungry with good things
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He hath holpen his servant Israel
in remembrance of his mercy;
as he spake to our fathers,
to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
Glory be to the Father, the Son and to the Holy Ghost,
as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
