Responsum [acceperat]1 Simeon a Spiritu Sancto, 
non visurum se mortem 
nisi videret Christum Domini.

Et benedixit Deum et dixit: 
Nunc dimittis servum tuum Domine 
secundum verbum tuum in pace:
Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum, Domine.

Cum ergo cognovisset, 
accepit eum in ulnas suas et portabatur et ait:

Nunc dimittis servum tuum Domine 
secundum verbum tuum in pace:
Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum, Domine.

W. Byrd sets stanza 1
