Magnificat (For Mary, Mother of Jesus)

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.
