Latin text:

Magnificat anima mea Dominum;
Et exsultavit spiritus meus in Deo salutari meo,

Quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae; ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes.


Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est, et sanctum nomen ejus,
Et misericordia ejus a progenie in progenies timentibus eum.

Fecit potentiam in bracchio suo;
Dispersit superbos mente cordis sui.


Deposuit potentes de sede, et exaltavit humiles.
Esurientes implevit bonis, et divites dimisit inanes.

Suscepit Israel, puerum suum, recordatus misericordiae suae,
Sicut locutus est ad patres nostros, Abraham et semini ejus in saecula.

Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto,
sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper: et in Saecula saeculorum. Amen.


English text:

My soul doth magnify the Lord, 
and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden. 

For behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. 

And his mercy is on them that fear him throughout all generations.
He hath shewed strength with his arm. 

He hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 

He hath put down the mighty from their seat 
and hath exalted the humble and 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.
