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.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, 
and to the Holy Ghost; 
as it was in the beginning, 
[is]1 now and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
