The Annunciation/The Magnificat

And on the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent into the town of Galilee.
To a virgin, who was engaged to a man named Joseph, her name was Mary.
And the Angel said.
Peace be with you, the Lord, your God has blessed you.
For you are highly favored.
But the words troubled her with their meaning.
Do not be afraid, you have found favor with God,
you will soon bear a child, A Son, and you will call Him Jesus.
He will be great, and he'll be called Son of The Most High.
The Lord God will give Him the throne of His Father David.
And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever.
His kingdom will never end.
My soul doeth magnify the Lord.
My soul doeth magnify the Lord.
And I rejoice in God my savior, rejoice in God my savior
My name shall be called blessed, for all generations.
My soul doeth magnify the Lord.
My soul doeth magnify the Lord.
For He remembered the place of His servant, the lowly place of His servant,
My name shall be called blessed, for all generations.
For He has done great things, and Holy is His Name,
His mercy is on those who fear Him, for all generations.
My soul doeth magnify the Lord.
My soul doeth magnify the Lord.
My soul doeth magnify the Lord.
