Canticle 15   

The Song of Mary  Magnificat

Luke 1:46-55

My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
my spirit rejoices in God my Savior; *
   for he has looked with favor on his lowly servant. 
From this day all generations will call me blessed: *
   the Almighty has done great things for me,
   and holy is his Name. 
He has mercy on those who fear him *
   in every generation. 
He has shown the strength of his arm, *
   he has scattered the proud in their conceit. 
He has cast down the mighty from their thrones, *
   and has lifted up the lowly. 
He has filled the hungry with good things, *
   and the rich he has sent away empty. 
He has come to the help of his servant Israel, *
   for he has remembered his promise of mercy, 
The promise he made to our fathers, *
   to Abraham and his children for ever. 

Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
   as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
