Renewed: Lord God, Now Let Your Servants Depart in Peace

Join Greg Scheer as he introduces one of his own songs, based on Simeon’s words in Luke 2:29-32. It works beautifully as a closing song in worship, especially during the season of Epiphany.

In This Episode

The Nunc Dimittis, Simeon’s song in response to seeing the Messiah, continues to speak to us today. We still see Jesus every time we worship and we still pray that our encounter with the living Messiah would allow us to depart the sanctuary in peace. This simple benediction song helps us sing with Simeon and countless others whose lives have been changed by Christ.
