Lord, you have fulfilled your word;
now let your servant depart in peace.
1 With my own eyes I have seen the salvation,
which you have prepared in the sight of ev’ry people. (Refrain)
2 A light to reveal you to the nations
and the glory of your people Israel. (Refrain)
Antiphon for use at Compline (before and after Canticle):
Guide us waking, O Lord, and guard us sleeping;
that awake we may watch with Christ, and asleep we may rest in peace.
