Original text and translations

Latin.png Latin text

Nunc dimittis servum tuum Domine
Secundum verbum tuum in pace
Quia viderunt oculi, mei salutare tuum
Quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum
Lumen ad revelationem gentium
Et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.
Vulgate, 4th Century

Now Thou dost dismiss they servant, O Lord
According to the word in peace
Because my eyes have seen thy salvation
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples
A light to the revelation of the gentiles
And the glory of thy people Israel
Douay-Rheims, 1582
