Nunc Dimittis

Simeon's Song of Praise

When I first saw Nunc Dimittis, I thought it was like the gibberish you see on a newsletter template (Lorum ipsum etc., etc.).  It actually is the opening line in Latin for Simeon’s Song found in Luke 2:29-32.  The meaning of the Latin is “Now dismiss” and is speaking of Simeon’s praise to the Lord that he may die in peace after seeing the Christ child. 

When we look upon Christ with Simeon-like faith that God delivers on His promises, we too can experience the peace of God.  May the Holy Spirit direct you this Christmas season to look upon “a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and for glory to your people Israel.” – Luke 2:32
