Magnificat - Canticle of Mary
Magnificat – Canticle of Mary
Composed by Rebecca De La Torre
The Mighty One has done great things for me,
and my spirit rejoices in his Holy Name.
My soul proclaims his greatness and his mercy;
how he has blessed me will be sung from age to age.
He has looked upon his handmaid in her lowliness;
and all the nations forth will call me blessed.
He has lifted upthe lowly by his greatness
and kept his promises to Abraham’s decendants.
The hungry he has filled with good things;
the rich he has sent away empty.
He has thrown down from their thrones the lofty kings,
but by his mighty armhas lifted up the lowly.
