My soul proclaims your greatness Oh my God
And my spirit has rejoiced in you, my Savior
For your regard has blessed me
An ordinary woman who searches.
From this day all generations will call me blessed
For you are mighty, you have made me great
And holy is your name.
Your mercy is on those who fear you through all generations.
You have scattered the proud and their hearts' fantasies.
You put down the might from their seat
And have lifted up the powerless.
You have filled the hungry with good things
And have sent the rich empty away.
You, remembering your mercy, have helped your people Israel
As you promised Abraham, Sarah and mercy to their children forever.
