C30. Magnificat

1 My soul doth magnify the Lord and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
2 For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden.
3 For behold from hencefoth all generations shall call me blessed.
4 For he that is mighty hath magnified me and holy is his Name.
5 And his mercy is on them that fear him throughout all generations.
6 He hath showed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their harts.
7 He hath put down the mighty from their seat and hath exalted the humble and meek.
8 He hath filled the hungry with good things and the rich he hath sent empty away.
9 He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel as he promised to our forefathers Abraham and his seed forever.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
