1029. Now May Your Servant, Lord

1 Now may your servant, Lord,
according to your word,
depart in exultation.
My peace shall be serene,
for now my eyes have seen
your wonderful salvation.

2 You did for all prepare
this gift so great, so rare,
fulfilling prophetss' story -
a light to show the way
to Gentiles gone astray,
and unto Israel's glory.
