My soul doth magnify the Lord
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded lowliness of his handmaiden.
For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me,
and holy is his name
and his mercy is on them, that fear him through all generations.
He hath shewed strength with his arm,
he hath scatter'd the proud 
in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down mighty from their seat
and hath exalted the humble and the meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy 
hath holpen his servant Israel,
as he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed forever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, 
and to the Holy Ghost; 
as it was in the beginning, 
[is]1 now and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
