You send your servant forth in peace

from by Steve Thorngate



Words & music by Steve Thorngate
Based on 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.
