Jesu, dulcis memoria,
Dans vera cordi gaudia;
Sed super mel et omnia
Ejus dulcis præsentia.
Duræ premunt angustiæ,
Exaudi preces supplicum;
Fluunt amaræ lacrymæ ;
Exaudi vota pauperum.

When to the Temple Mary went, and brought the Holy
Child,

Him did the aged Simeon see, as it had been revealed.
He took up JESUS in his arms, and blessing GOD, he said:
In peace I now depart, my Saviour having seen,
The Hope of Israel, the Light of men.

Help now Thy servants, gracious LORD, that we may ever be

As once the faithful Simeon was, rejoicing but in Thee;
And when we must from earth departure take,
May gently fall asleep, and with Thee wake.
