The Magnificent

               The Magnificent

And Mary said,

“My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in

God my Saviour, for he has looked with favour on

The lowliness of his servant.

Surely, from now on all generations will call my blessed,

For the Mighty One has done great things for me,

And Holy is his name.

His mercy is for those who fear him from generation to


He has shown strength with his arm, he has scattered the

Proud in the thoughts of their hearts.

He has brought down the powerful from their thrones,

And lifted up the lowly,

He has filled the hungry with good things,

And has sent the rich away empty.

He has helped his servant Israel,

In remembrance of his mercy,

According to the promise he made to our ancestors,

To Abraham and to his descendants forever.”

And Mary remained with her for about three months and then returned to her home.
