11. Lord, Now Let Your Servant Depart in Peace (Nunc dimitis)

Lord, now let your servant depart in peace according to your word,
for my eyes have seen your salvation,
which you have prepared before the face of all people,
a light to lighten the Gentiles and the glory of your people Israel.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.
