The Magnificat ~ Canticle of Mary
The Magnificat [Latin: magnifies], also
called the Canticle of Mary, is recorded in
the Gospel of Luke (1:46-55). It is the Virgin
Mary's joyous prayer in response to her
cousin Elizabeth's greeting (Luke 1: 41-45).
This great hymn forms part of the Church's
prayer in the Divine Office (Liturgy of the
Hours). When it is recited as part of the
Divine Office, it is followed by the Gloria
Patri ("Glory be"). The traditional sung
Magnificat is Latin plainchant. One of the
hymn's most glorious musical renditions is
the version of the Magnificat by J.S. Bach.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church
describes the Magnificat as "the song both
of the Mother of God and of the Church"
[CCC 2619], and explains this prayer's
Mary's prayer is revealed to us at the
dawning of the fullness of time. Before the
Incarnation of the Son of God, and before
the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, her prayer
cooperates in a unique way with the Father's
plan of loving kindness: at the Annunciation,
for Christ's conception; at Pentecost, for the
formation of the Church, His Body. In the
faith of His humble handmaid, the Gift of
God found the acceptance He had awaited
from the beginning of time. She whom the
Almighty made "full of grace" responds by
offering her whole being: "Behold I am the
handmaid of the Lord; let it be [done] to me
according to Thy word". "Fiat": this is
Christian prayer: to be wholly Gods' because
He is wholly ours. [CCC 2617]
The Magnificat appears below both in
English and in Latin.
My soul magnifies the Lord,
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.
For He has regarded the low estate of His
For behold, henceforth all
generations shall call me blessed.
For He
who is mighty has done great things for me,
and holy is His name. And His mercy is on
those who fear Him from generation to
He has shown strength with His
He has scattered the proud in the
imagination of their hearts.
He has put down
the mighty from their thrones,
and exalted
those of low degree.
He has filled the
hungry with good things;
and the rich He
has sent empty away.
He has helped His
servant Israel, in remembrance of His mercy;
As He spoke to our fathers, to Abraham and
to His posterity forever.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to
the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be, world without end.
