Text

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace:
according to thy word.
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation:
which thou hast prepar’d before the face of all people;
To be a light to lighten the Gentiles:
and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost:
As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be;
World without end. Amen.
