(Note: Composers frequently repeat, omit, or put phrases out of order.)
Magnificat anima mea Magnificat
My soul magnifies (glorifies) the Lord,
Dominum et exsultavit spiritus meus
and my spirit rejoices
in Deo salutari meo
in God my Savior;
Quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae
For he has regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden.
ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent omnes generationes
For behold, from this day all generations will call me blessed;
Quia fecit mihi magna qui potens est
For the mighty one has done great things to me,
et sanctum nomen ejus
and holy is his name.
(Repeat first verse)
