It is truly right and just, our duty and our salvation,
always and everywhere to give you thanks,
Lord, holy Father, almighty and eternal God,
through Christ our Lord.
For your co-eternal Son was presented on this day in the Temple
and revealed by the Spirit as the glory of Israel
and Light of the nations.
As so, we, too, go forth,
rejoicing to encounter your Salvation,
and with the Angels and Saints praise you,
as without end we acclaim:
