Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy word,
for mine eyes have seen Thy salvation,
which Thou hast openly prepared before the face of all people.
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles, and a glory for Thy people Israel.

Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace.
