Original text and translations
My soul doth magnify the Lord,
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
Ant. You who are more honored than the Cherubim and more glorious than the Seraphim,
you tho, uncorrupted, gave birth to God the Word, we exalt you.
For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden:
for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. Ant.
For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. Ant.
He hath shewed strength with his arm;
he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. Ant.
He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree.
He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. Ant.
He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy;
As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. Ant.
