    Nunc dimittis (The Song of Simeon)
     
      Now, Lord, you let your servant go in peace:
      your word has been fulfilled.
      My own eyes have seen the salvation
      which you have prepared in the sight of every people;
      A light to reveal you to the nations
      and the glory of your people Israel.
    How this could be a comfort to a couple who've just lost their seven-year-old son, I don't know. But it was, today. It was.
