Luke 1:46-47, 49
And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.… For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name.
Luke 1:46-56,  called the “Magnificat” from the first word of the song in Latin, comes from the heart of Mary, inspired by the song of Hannah (1Kg 2:1–10). It is normally sung at Matins in the liturgical cycle. From this inspired hymn, we are taught: (1) Christian believers for all time will honor and venerate the Virgin Mary, for she prophesied that all generations will call me blessed (v. 48); (2) it is impossible to believe in the inspiration of Scripture and not bless the Mother of God; (3) Mary ascribes the miracle of the Incarnation to God, and not to herself, showing both deep humility and the knowledge that God is the source of all grace (v. 49); (4) through the Incarnation, God reigns over all (vv. 50–55).

Read all of Luke 1
