Prayer of the Righteous Simeon
Also called "The Song of Simeon" or "The Canticle of Simeon" (Luke 2:29–32)
Lord, now lettest Thou Thy servant depart in peace, according to Thy word!
For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation,
Which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people;
A light for revelation to the gentiles, and for glory to Thy people Israel!
