The Song of Simeon

The essential evening and nighttime prayer of the church is The Song of Simeon, or Nunc dimittis. It speaks of the ability to die in peace because the hope of seeing the Savior has been fulfilled. This hope is the glory of God’s people, Israel, and is a blessing to all the nations. It is a fulfillment of one of God’s promises to Abraham and Sarah.
