proclaims your greatness, O my God,
and my spirit
has rejoiced in your my Saviour;
For you have regarded me as your holy handmaid;
henceforth all generations shall call me blessed;
For you who are mighty, have done great things for me,
and Holy is your Name;
Your mercy is on those who fear you throughout all generations.
You have showed strength
with your arm.
You have scattered the proud in the conceit of their heart.
You have put down the mighty from their seat,
and have lifted up the powerless.
You have filled the hungry with good
and have sent the rich away empty.
Remembering your mercy,
You have helped your people Israel -
As you promised Abraham
Mercy to their children

to honour our father and mother,
have compassion in Thy mercy,

forgive them their sins,
and grant that I may see them
in the joy of eternal brightness.
Through Christ our Lord.
