Song of Simeon

Luke 2: 29-32

  • Ostinato refrain:
    Now Lord, you have kept your word,
    let your servant go in peace.
  1. With my own eyes
    I have seen the salvation
    which you prepared
    in the sight of ev'ry people.
  2. Light, a light to reveal you to the nations
    and the glory of your people Israel.
