Nunc dimittis, the Song of Simeon, from the Feast of the Presentation:
Lord, you now have set your servant free
to go in peace as you have promised;
For these eyes of mine have seen the Savior,
whom you have prepared for all the world to see:
A Light to enlighten the nations,
and the glory of your people Israel.
I so nearly blogged this too today! Glad I didn’t and let you do it. Once again we are travelling at same pace!
It’s good to have traveling companions. Thank you.
….so beautiful, thanks for posting
Thank you. Arvo Pärt is brilliant and his music touches me deeply, takes me to a place of silence.
