SONG OF SIMEON

by Kenneth Nichols

Home > Composers > Kenneth Nichols > SONG OF SIMEON

featuring the Cypress Studio Singers
This joyful anthem is perfect for the Christmas season or any time of year – the message is timeless! Also know as the Nunc Dimittis – this piece is about the moment Simeon, who resides in the temple, sees the baby Jesus for the first time and realizes that He is the promised Messiah. Kenneth uses sophisticated, yet approachable composition techniques to bring scripture to life.

LYRICS

Lord, now lettest thy servant depart in peace
according to thy word
For mine eyes have seen thy salvation
which thou hast prepared before the face of all people.

To be a light – to lighten the Gentiles
and to be the glory of thy people Israel

Glory be to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Ghost

As it was in the beginning
is now and ever shall be,
world without end, amen.
