And Mary said: "My soul glorifies the Lord147
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,248
for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant.3 From now on all generations will call me blessed,449
for the Mighty One has done great things5 for me-- holy is his name.650
His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation.751
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm;8 he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.952
He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble.1053
He has filled the hungry with good things11 but has sent the rich away empty.
He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful1255
to Abraham and his descendants13 forever, even as he said to our fathers."
Mary stayed with Elizabeth for about three months and then returned home.
