Consider reading the chapter in several translations and choosing a few verses to memorize. I chose:
Luke 1:45 NKJV
Blessed is she who believed,
for there will be a fulfillment of those things which were told her from the Lord.

Luke 1:49 NIV
The Mighty One has done great things for me– holy is his name.

Luke 1:78-79 NRSV
By the tender mercy of our God, the dawn from on high will break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
