My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord!
My spirit rejoices in God my Savior!
God favored me, His lowly servant,
and from this day
all generations will call me
The Almighty has done great things for me,
and holy is His Name.
In every generation
God has mercy on those
who awe and honor Him.
With strength of arm that can be seen,
God scatters the pride of the proud.
From high places,
He casts down the mighty
and lifts the lowly
to new heights.
God fills with good things
those who hunger for Him
but sends away those
too filled with themselves
to know they are empty.
God comes to help His people!
He remembers well
the promise of mercy made
to our forefathers and foremothers –
to Abraham and the children
