Magnificat
Juliano Ravanello Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

A minha alma
Engrandece o Senhor.
Porque olhou para minha humildade!
Minha alma engrandece o Senhor,
Em Deus meu salvador exulte, canto.
Todas as gerações vão bendizer-me,
Pois sob a humildade serva se inclinou,
Imensas maravilhas fez em mim,
Deus de todo poder, Santo é o Seu Nome!
Sua Misericórdia há de estender-se,
Por toda a geração sob os que o temem.
Manifestou a força de seu braço,
Os corações soberbos dispersou.
Depôs os poderosos e seus tronos,
Aos humildes porém quis exaltar!
Colocou seus bens quem tinha fome.
Aos ricos despediu de mãos vazias,
Socorreu Israel, seu servidor,
Sua Misericórdia recordando,
Conforme prometera aos nossos pais
A abraão e toda descendência.
Demos Glória a Deus Pai Onipotente,
E a Seu Filho Jesus Cristo, Senhor Nosso,
E ao Espírito que habita em nosso peito,




Pelos séculos dos séculos.
Amém.

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Juliano Ravanello's song Magnificat are based on the biblical passage of the same name, which is also known as the Song of Mary. The song is a powerful acknowledgement of God's greatness and mercy towards his people. The lyrics speak of how the author's soul magnifies the Lord, as he has looked upon his humility and has performed miracles in his life. The author goes on to say that generations will call him blessed, for God has exalted the humble and has brought down the mighty. He has fed the hungry and sent the rich away empty-handed, and has fulfilled his promise to Abraham and his descendants. The song ends with a call to give glory to God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.


One interesting fact about the song is that it is traditionally attributed to Mary, the mother of Jesus, as it closely resembles the words she spoke in the Gospel of Luke when visiting her cousin Elizabeth. Another fact is that the song has been set to music by many composers throughout history, including Johann Sebastian Bach and Antonio Vivaldi. It is also used in many religious services, especially in the Catholic and Anglican churches. Additionally, the song has been translated into many different languages, including Spanish, French, and Italian.


Another interesting fact is that the song has been used as a symbol of resistance in times of oppression, most notably during the Salvadoran Civil War in the 1980s, when the song was sung by many women who had lost loved ones to the conflict. This use of the song emphasized its themes of justice and mercy in the face of political and social upheaval.


The chords for Juliano Ravanello's Magnificat are not readily available, as the song is primarily performed by a choir rather than a solo performer. However, the song is typically composed in a minor key, with a slow tempo and emotive vocal lines.
