1  Maria wallt zum Heiligtum und bringt ihr Kindlein dar,
das schaut der greise Simeon, wie ihm verheißen war.
Da nimmt er Jesum in den Arm und singt im Geiste froh:

Nun fahr' ich hin mit Freud,
dich, Heiland, sah ich heut,
du Trost von Israel, das Licht der Welt.

2  Hilf nun, du liebster Jesu Christ, dass wir zu jeder Frist
an dir wie auch der Simeon all uns're Freude han
und kommt die Zeit, sanft schlafen ein und also singen froh:

Nun fahr' ich hin mit Freud,
dich, Heiland, sah ich heut,
du Trost von Israel, das Licht der Welt.

1  Mary made a pilgrimage to the temple and brought her child there,
who was seen by the aged Simeon, as the prophets had foretold.
Simeon took Jesus in his arms, and joyfully sang:

Now I go forth with joy,
for today I have seen You, Savior —
comfort of Israel, light of the World.

2  O dear Jesus, grant now that we at all times
find all our joy in Thee, just as Simeon did,
and that, when the time comes, we pass away gently and thus sing gladly:

Now I go forth with joy,
for today I have seen You, Savior —
comfort of Israel, light of the World.

Translation by John Troutbeck

1  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.

2  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, departure take,

may gently fall asleep,
may gently fall asleep,
may gently fall asleep and with Thee wake.
