The song of Mary, Mother of Jesus

Magnificat 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 blessed. 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 of God forever. ©2012 Mary Harwell Sayler , prayer-a-phrase of Luke 1:46-55
