Representative Text

29. Now Lord, as thou hast said, dismiss,
In peace, thy servant, to his rest:
30. Because my longing eyes, with sight
Of thy salvation, have been blest.
31. Which thou hast wondrously prepared,
Open, before all people's face;
A light to gentiles, shining clear.
And glory to thine Israel's race.
