17 The Song of Simeon Nunc dimittis
From the Book of Divine Worship - The Daily Office - Daily Evening Prayer - Rite Two - The Lessons
Lord, you now have set your servant free *
to go in peace as you have promised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior, *
whom you have prepared for all the world to see:
A Light to enlighten the nations, *
and the glory of your people Israel.
Glory to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit: *
as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be for ever. Amen.
