Nunc Dimittis

by M. J. Joachim

Nunc Dimittis is a song of the servant, being dismissed to serve the Lord. Historically known as the Canticle of Simeon, this song refers to God’s answer to Simeon’s prayer, that he should not die until he laid eyes on Jesus, the Savior of the world. It is recited during Liturgical Prayers, and at various other appropriate times throughout the Church’s liturgical year.

Thank you for visiting Being Catholic.
