Carol Communion: Nunc Dimittis
Tune: Cradle Song or Away in a Manger (Mueller)
11 11 11 11
O Lord, bid Thy servant departure in peace.
I’ve seen Thy salvation, the sinner’s release.
For Israel’s Glory — the Gentile’s Light —
Fed me in His Supper and brought true delight.
To Thee, Father, glory, glory to the Son
And to Holy Spirit while long ages run.
Keep safe us, Thy children, who, under Thy care,
Are pilgrims through this life til Thy presence fair.
