The Song of Simeon

[lord now lettest thou thy servant]
John Naylor, 1838-1897

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.

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.
