1Now, Lord, you let your servant go in peace: your word has been fulfilled.
2My own eyes have seen the salvation which you have prepared in the sight of every people;
3A light to reveal you to the nations and the glory of your people Israel.
Save us, O Lord, while waking, and guard us while sleeping, that awake we may watch with Christ and asleep may rest in peace.
Be present, O merciful God,
and protect us through the silent hours of this night,
so that we who are wearied
by the changes and chances of this fleeting world,
may repose upon thy eternal changelessness;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
GOD IS GOOD ALL THE TIME
ALL THE TIME GOD IS GOOD
