Mary’s Worship and Praise
46 And Mary said:
“My soul [a]exalts the Lord,
47 And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior.
48 “For He has had regard for the humble state of His [b]bondslave;
For behold, from this time on all generations will count meblessed.
49 “For the Mighty One has done great things for me;
And holy is His name.
50 “And His mercy is [c]upon generation after generation
Toward those who fear Him.
51 “He has done [d]mighty deeds with His arm;
He has scattered those who were proud in the [e]thoughts of their heart.
52 “He has brought down rulers from their thrones,
And has exalted those who were humble.
53 “He has filled the hungry with good things;
And sent away the rich empty-handed.
54 “He has given help to Israel His servant,
[f]In remembrance of His mercy,
55 As He spoke to our fathers,
To Abraham and his [g]descendants forever.”
