The Song of Mary
1 My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour; he has looked with favour on his lowly servant.
2 From this day all generations will call me blessed; the Almighty has done great things for me and holy is his name.
3 He has mercy on those who fear him, from generation to generation.
4 He has shown strength with his arm and has scattered the proud in their conceit,
5 Casting down the mighty from their thrones and lifting up the lowly.
6 He has filled the hungry with good things and sent the rich away empty.
7 He has come to the aid of his servant Israel, to remember his promise of mercy,
8 The promise made to our ancestors, to Abraham and his children for ever.
Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit;
as it was in the beginning is now and shall be for ever. Amen.
