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.
— Luke 2:29-32 Douay-Rheims Version, public domain.
