My Soul Magnifies my Beloved

My soul magnifies my Beloved, and my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour,
for she has looked with favour on me.
Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for the Loving One has done great things for me,
and holy is her name.

Her mercy is for those who love her
from generation to generation.
She has shown strength with her arm;
she has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.
She has brought down the powerful from their thrones,
and lifted up the lowly; she has filled the hungry with good things,
and sent the rich away empty.

She has helped me,
because she is full of mercy, according to the promise she made to our ancestors,
to Sara and to her descendants forever. 

 

 

(my version of Luke 1:46-55)
