You can help us modernize! The present website has been online for a very long time and we want to bring it up to date. As of April 20, we are $4,600 away from our goal of $15,000 to fund the project. The fully redesigned site will be better for mobile, easier to read and navigate, and ready for the next decade. Please give today and join dozens of other supporters in making this important renovation possible!

Magnificat

Language: Greek (Ελληνικά)

Megalynei ἡ psychē mu tὸn Kyrion
kaὶ ἠgalliasen tὸ pneῦma mu ἐpὶ tῷ Theῷ tῷ sōtῆri mu,
ὅti ἐpeblepsen ἐpὶ tὴn tapeinōsin tῆs doylēs autoῦ.
ἰdoy gὰr ἀpὸ toῦ nῦn makarioῦsin me pᾶsai aἱ geneai,
ὅti ἐpoiēsen moi megala ὁ dynatos,
kaὶ ἅgion tὸ ὄnoma aὐtoῦ,
kaὶ tὸ ἔleos aὐtoῦ eἰs geneὰs kaὶ geneὰs
toῖs phobumenoῖs auton.
Ἐpoiēsen kratos ἐn brachioni aὐtoῦ,
dieskorpisen ὑperēphanus dianoiᾳ kardias aὐtῶn;
katheῖlen dynastas ἀpὸ thronōn
kaὶ ὕpsōsen tapeinoys,
peinῶntas ἐneplēsen ἀgathῶn
kaὶ plutoῦntas ἐxapesteilen kenoys.
ἀntelabeto Ἰsraὴl paidὸs aὐtoῦ,
mnēsthῆnai ἐleus,
kathὼs ἐlalēsen prὸs toὺs pateras ἡmῶn
tῷ Abraὰm kaὶ tῷ spermati aὐtoῦ eἰs tὸn aἰῶna.
