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.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me
and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him
throughout all generations.
He hath shewed strenght with his arm
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 rememb’ring his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel
as he promised to our forefathers Abraham and his seed, for ever.
In de liturgie wordt na de tekst van het Magnificat vrijwel altijd het Klein Gloria gezongen:
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
