Luke 1:46b-55

Mary said,

My soul thrills with God,
My spirit exults in God, who saves me,
Because, though I’m nobody important, I’ve been chosen.

Everyone will surely know that I’ve been blessed
Because God has come through for me.
God is awesome.

God’s relief comes to those who respect God,
Past, present and future.
God has strong-armed
The proud, disrupting even their thoughts.
God has supported a people’s revolution
That has toppled tyrants.
God has fed the hungry at a banquet
To which the rich have been uninvited.
God has helped the chosen people
And, true to God’s own nature, cared.
God has kept the promise made to our ancestors,
To Abraham and every generation since.
