Go in Peace (Canticle of Simeon) 

[D]Now let your[G]servant go in[A]peace, 
[Bm]Your word has been[G]fulfilled, 
[D]Now let your[G]servant go in[A]peace, 
[D]In the glory of Israel. 

[D]My eyes have seen[G]salvation, 
[A]Which you surely have pre[D]pared, 
In the sight of every[G]people of[A]earth, 
A light to the[D]nations. 


[D]This child is[G]destined, 
[A]For the downfall and[D]rise, 
Of many children of[G]Israel, 
This[A]child is contradiction's[D]sign. 

[D]And you yourself shall be[G]pierced 
Through the heart[A]as with a[D]sword, 
That the thoughts and hearts of[G]many on[A]earth 
Shall surely be ex[D]posed.
