“Simeon,” New Era, Dec. 1986, 51
Simeon held a child in his arms,
Called by the Spirit to the temple.
He was so very old, this man
Of God; but waited, promised
By the Holy Ghost that he would
See Emmanuel before his death.
Now, as he raised the infant high,
Presenting him to God his Father;
Simeon praised the Lord in mighty
Prayer, for he had heard
The Spirit, with clear trumpet sound,
And the echo of the angels,
Crying, “Here is Christ the King!”
