Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine

Language: Latin

Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine, 
secundum verbum tuum in pace.
Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum.
Quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum.
Lumen ad revelationem gentium,
et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant...

Language: English after the Latin

Lord, now lettest thou 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 they people Israel.
