Nunc Dimittis (Song of Simeon)

from Come Lord Jesus (Songs of Advent) by Christ Church East Bay

supported by


Text adapted from Luke's Gospel account (2:29-32) of "Simeon's Song". Music by Eric Gilbert ©2009 Christ Church East Bay Music


Lord, now let me depart in peace
For I have seen Your salvation
A light in the darkness for weary ones
Your glory among all the nations

Come, Lord Jesus, come
Emmanuel, God with us
Light of the world given all for love
Glory to God in the highest

For us and for our salvation
Promise of old from on high
Wrapped in the garb of humanity
The Word who would suffer and die

Silently now You descend to us
Bidding our sorrows to cease
Beautiful Savior now flesh and blood
Bringing us life and peace

Come, Lord Jesus, come
Emmanuel born to us
Mystery revealing the Father’s love
Glory to God in the highest
