Lyrics

When to the Temple Mary went, And brought the Holy Child,
Him did the aged Simeon see, As it had been reveal'd.
He to,Ok up Jesus in his arms And, blessing God, he said:
In peace I now depart, My Saviour having seen. The Hope of Israel, the Light of men.

Help now Thy servants, gracious Lord, That we may ever be,
As once the faithful Simeon was, Rejoicing but in Thee:
And when we must from Earth departure take,
May gently fall asleep, And with Thee wake.
