Advent, Day 10


My soul proclaims the greatness of the Lord,
       my spirit rejoices in God my Saviour;

       he has looked with favour on his lowly servant.
From this day all generations will call me blessed;
       the Almighty has done great things for me
       and holy is his name.

He has mercy on those who fear him,
       from generation to generation.
He has shown strength with his arm
       and has scattered the proud in their conceit,
Casting down the mighty from their thrones
       and lifting up the lowly.
He has filled the hungry with good things
       and sent the rich away empty.
He has come to the aid of his servant Israel,
       to remember his promise of mercy,
The promise made to our ancestors,
       to Abraham and his children for ever.

Words: Magnificat in Common Worship
