  2. Mary:

    My soul doth magnify the Lord. And my spirit rejoiceth in God my Saviour. Because He hath looked down on the lowliness of His handmaid: for behold henceforth all generations will call me blessed. Because the Mighty One hath done great things for me: and holy is His name. And His mercy is from generation to generation: on those who fear Him. He showeth might in His arm: He scattereth the proud in the conceit of their heart. He casteth down the mighty from theirthrone: and exalteth the lowly. He filleth the hungry with good things: and the rich He sendeth away empty. He hath received His servant Israel: being mindful of His mercy. As He spake to our fathers: to Abraham and to his seed forever.
