Lord, let thy servant now depart in peace: according to thy promise.
For mine eyes have seen the Saviour sent from thee
Whom thou hast prepared: before the face of thy people.
A light to lighten the Gentiles: to be the glory of thy people of Israel.
Glory to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning and is now, and ever shall be: world without end
Alway so be it, so be it.
