Luke 2:28-32New International Version

Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:

29 “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised,
    you may now dismiss[a] your servant in peace.
30 For my eyes have seen your salvation,
31     which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles,
    and the glory of your people Israel.”

Eyes beaming

lifting up God’s grace

a promise fulfilled

the world’s salvation laced

Light illuminates the darkness

souls no longer bound

freedom from bondage

wrapped in a baby’s sound

A revelation

more precious than gold

salvation for believers

in the greatest story ever told


Thank you for blessing us with the beautiful revelation of salvation. Thank you for the baby Jesus who changed everything.
