Vandaag heeft de gezegende maagd Maria
het kind Jezus in de tempel opgedragen;
en Simeon, vervuld van de Heilige Geest,
nam het in zijn armen,
en verheerlijkte God eeuwiglijk.

et benedixit Deum, et dixit: Nunc dimittis servum tuum[, Domine, secundum verbum tuum] in pace.

and blessed God,and said: Now let your servant depart in peace[, Lord, according to your word].

en verheerlijkte God, en sprak: Nu laat Uw dienaar in vrede gaan.
