1. Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go in peace as you have promised;
2. For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior,
whom you have prepared for all the world to see;
3. 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.
