48 for he has looked with favor on the lowly state of his servant.
    Surely from now on all generations will call me blessed,(C)
49 for the Mighty One has done great things for me,
    and holy is his name;(D)
50 indeed, his mercy is for those who fear him
    from generation to generation.(E)

Holy is his name.
50     He shows mercy to everyone,
        from one generation to the next,
        who honors him as God.
