My soul will magnify the Lord,
Though my body humbles Him –
Eternity contained within a womb;
Grand kingdoms thrown to the ground
And humble plots of land raised up;
The hungry filled, the complacent hungry;
The pure made from earthly soil;
The humble one called blessed.
All this is reversed when
Eternity enters my womb.
In my heart, I have pondered these
Things, vast beyond all belief.
Let them slowly unfold,
microscopically within me:
My soul will magnify the Lord.
