SATB Choir. Not too difficult with very lovely Renaissance polyphony — In English, set to the famous madrigal, Mon coer recommande à vous. Text from: Luke 2: 29-32. Also available for unison and keyboard.
Lord, let thy servant now depart,
In peace and joy and meet oblation;
Thy word is hidden in my heart,
Mine eyes have seen thy salvation.
To be a light to nations shining,
And to thy people Israel,
Glory, honor, praise combining,
"God with us," Emmanuel.
Glory to the Father and the Son,
And to the Holy Ghost sing praises,
While timeless ages ever run,
World without end, Amen.
