Representative Text

Antiphon:
Mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
which thou hast prepared before
the face of all people.

1. Lord, now lettest thou thy servant
depart in peace, according to thy word;

2. For mine eyes have seen thy salvation,
which thou hast prepared before
the face of all people,

3. To be a light to lighten the Gentiles,
and to be the glory
of thy people Israel. [Ant.]

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. [Ant.]
