Night Prayer: Nunc Dimittis

Now thou dost dismiss thy servant, O Lord,
according to thy word in peace:

Because my eyes have seen Thy salvation,
Which Thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples:

A light to to the revelation of the Gentiles
and the glory of Thy people Israel.

Glory to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now,
and will be for ever. Amen.
