Magnificat
Mariagrazia Petrillo Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

L'anima mia magnifica il Signore
ed il mio spirito esulta in Dio, mio salvatore,

perché ha guardato l'umiltà della sua serva.
D'ora in poi tutte le generazioni mi chiameranno beata.
Grandi cose ha fatto in me l'Onnipotente
e santo é il suo nome
L'anima mia magnifica il Signore
ed il mio spirito esulta in Dio, mio salvatore,

Di generazione in generazione la sua misericordia
si stende su quelli che lo temono.
Ha spiegato la potenza del suo braccio,
ha disperso i superbi nei pensieri del loro cuore;

L'anima mia magnifica il Signore
ed il mio spirito esulta in Dio, mio salvatore,

Ha rovesciato i potenti dai troni,
ha innalzato gli umili;
ha ricolmato di beni gli affamati,
ha rimandato i ricchi a mani vuote.

L'anima mia magnifica il Signore
ed il mio spirito esulta in Dio, mio salvatore,

Ha soccorso Israele, suo servo,
ricordandosi della sua misericordia,
come aveva detto ai nostri padri,
per Abramo e la sua discendenza, per sempre.





L'anima mia magnifica il Signore
ed il mio spirito esulta in Dio, mio Salvatore.
