Magnificat
Harpa Dei Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Magníficat ánima mea Dóminum.

Et exultávit spíritus meus:
In Deo salutári meo.

Quia respéxit humilitátem ancíllae suae:

Ecce enim ex hoc beátam me dicent omnes generatiónes.

Quia fécit mihi mágna qui pótens est:
Et sánctum nómen eius.

Et misericórdia eius in progénies et progénies
Timéntibus eum.

Fécit poténtiam in bráchio suo:
Dispérsit supérbos mente cordis sui.

Depósuit poténtes de sede:
Et exaltávit húmiles.

Esuriéntes implévit bonis:
Et dívites dimísit inánes.

Suscépit Ísrael púerum suum:
Recordátus misericórdiae suae.

Sicut locútus est ad patres nostros:
Ábraham, et sémini eius in saecula.

Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto,





Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper,
Et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Harpa Dei's song Magnificat are a translation of the Latin hymn, also called the Song of Mary, which is based on the words of the Virgin Mary as recorded in the Gospel of Luke. The song starts with "Magnificat anima mea Dominum" which means "My soul magnifies the Lord." This line expresses Mary's deep reverence for God and her desire to praise Him. She then continues on to say that her spirit rejoices in God her Savior, as she is filled with gratitude and joy for what He has done for her.


Mary goes on to acknowledge God's mercy to her, recognizing that it is only by His power that she has been made blessed. She recognizes that God has lifted her up and that all generations will call her blessed. The song then takes a more prophetic tone as Mary acknowledges God's power to bring down the proud and exalt the humble, and to provide for those in need. She gives thanks for God's faithfulness to Israel and to all those who fear Him. The song ends with a Trinitarian doxology, expressing Mary's belief in the triune nature of God and His eternal nature.


Overall, the song is a beautiful expression of devotion and gratitude to God for everything He has done. It speaks to Mary's own humility and recognition of God's power and mercy, as well as her prophetic understanding of His ultimate purposes. Magnificat is a powerful reminder of the importance of praising God and acknowledging His goodness in our lives, even in the midst of difficulty and challenge.
