You Send Your Servant Forth in Peace

from The Luke Canticles by Steve Thorngate



The Song of Simeon, Luke 2:29–32


You send your servant forth in peace,
According to your word.
For my eyes, my eyes have seen
The salvation of the Lord.

My eyes have seen your salvation,
Which you have prepared
In the presence of all people.

My eyes have seen your salvation,
A light for revelation
To all people for Israel’s glory.
