thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the mother of
my Lord should come to me? For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation
sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. And blessed is she
that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told
her from the Lord.

said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my
spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. For he hath regarded the low estate of his
handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed.

things; and holy is his name.
- And his mercy is on them that fear him from
generation to generation.
- He hath shewed strength
with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their
- 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.
- He hath helped his servant Israel, in remembrance of his
- As he spake to our
fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever.
