Enjoy this lovely version of Mary’s “Magnificat” which Linda wrote and sang in French.

And Mary said:
Mon âme exalte le Seigneur,
Et mon esprit se réjouit en Dieu, mon Sauveur,
Parce qu’il a jeté les yeux sur la bassesse de sa servante. Car voici, désormais toutes les générations me diront bienheureuse,
Parce que le Tout Puissant a fait pour moi de grandes choses. Son nom est saint,  Et sa miséricorde s’étend d’âge en âge Sur ceux qui le craignent.
Il a déployé la force de son bras; Il a dispersé ceux qui avaient dans le coeur des pensées orgueilleuses.
Il a renversé les puissants de leurs trônes, Et il a élevé les humbles.

“My soul glorifies the Lord
and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior,
for he has been mindful
of the humble state of his servant.
From now on all generations will call me blessed,
for the Mighty One has done great things for me —
holy is His name.
His mercy extends to those who fear Him,
from generation to generation.
He has performed mighty deeds with His arm;
He has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.
He has brought down rulers from their thrones
but has lifted up the humble.

Luke 1:46-52
