Text

Magnificat anima mea Dominum,
et exultavit spiritus meus
in Deo salutari meo.
Quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae,
ecce enim ex hoc beatam
me dicent omnes generationes.
Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est,
et sanctum nomen eius.
Et misericordia eius a progenie
in progenies timentibus eum.
Fecit potentiam in brachio suo,
dispersit superbos mente cordis sui.
Deposuit potentes de sede
et exaltavit humiles.
Esurientes implevit bonis,
et divites dimisit inanes.
Suscepit Israel puerum suum,
recordatus misericordiae suae,
sicut locutus est ad patres nostros,
Abraham et semini eius in saecula.
Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto.
Sicut erat in principio et nunc et semper,
et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

(Lc. 1:46-55)

Translation

My soul doth magnify the Lord,
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded, 
the lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold, from henceforth,
all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me,
and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him,
throughout all generations.
He hath shewed strength with his arm,
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts
He hath put down the mighty from their seat,
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel,
as he promised to our forefathers, 
Abraham and his seed for ever.
Glory Be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now, 
and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
