Lord, let your servant go in peace

I heard this song first time when I accompanied a choir on a Sunday Mass in Cathedral back home last December.. and since then, this beautiful and peaceful tune, and this beautiful prayer by Simeon keep humming in my mind.. It feels very peaceful, hopeful, and, yes, Lord! Let your servant go in peace...

Here is the lyric used on this particular arrangement

Lord, let Your servant go in peace
For Your Word has been fulfilled.

A Child shall be born to the Virgin,
And His Name shall be called, "Emmanuel."

My own eyes have seen Your salvation
Which You have prepared for all men.

A Light shall reveal to the nations
And the glory of Your people, Israel.
