My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has looked with favour on his lowly servant. From this day on all generations will call me blessed: for the Almighty has done great things for me, and holy is his Name. His loving mercy is from age to age for those who fear Him. He has made known the strength of his arm, and has scattered the proud of heart. He has put down the mighty from their thrones, and has exalted those who are lowly. He has filled the hungry with good things, and has sent the rich away empty. He has always helped Israel His servant, mindful of His loving mercy, even as He promised our fathers, to Abraham and his descendants forever. Amen.
