Canticle of Simon (Luke 2:29-32)

Canticle of Simeon
Christ is the light of the nations and the glory of Israel

Lord, now let you servant go in peace;
your word has been fulfilled:

my own eyes have seen the salvation
which you have prepared in the sight of every people:

a light to reveal you to 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.
