Nunc dimittis servum tuum, Domine, secundum verbum tuum in pace:
Quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum
Quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum:
Lumen ad revelationem gentium, et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.

English: Now thou dost dismiss thy servant, O Lord, according to thy word in peace;Because my eyes have seen thy salvation,Which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples:A light to the revelation of the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.

So Fahr:

So fahr ich hin zu Jesu Christ,
mein Arm tu ich ausstrecken,
so schlaf ich ein und ruhe fein,
kein Mensch kann mich aufwecken,
denn Jesus Christus, Gottes Sohn,
der wird die Himmelstür auftun,
mich führen zum ewigen Leben.

Thus I go hence to Jesus Christ,
I stretch out my arm,
thus I fall asleep and rest soundly;
no one can wake me
except for Jesus Christ, Son of God,
who will open the gate of heaven
and lead me to eternal life.

Song of Triumph:

Great and marvelous are your deeds,
Lord God Almighty.
Just and true are your ways,
You, O Lord, over all are King.

Who will not fear you, O Lord,
and bring glory to your name?

For you alone are holy.
Alleluia.

All nations will come
and worship before you,
for your mighty and holy acts have been revealed.

—Revelation 15:3-4

I would love to come to this!! But our choir is singing at Mr. Gillespie's church the same morning. I'm sure it will be fantastic.

Do you still want me to come if I still have no voice?

Of course.

So, it's not about the voice, just the warm body?...what does that leave us to think?...

That leaves us to think that you can't get out of a performance with a sore throat.

Fever? Contagious? Stay home.
