Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying: “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace. For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations: a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.”
Luke 2:28-32 (NIV)
Know this: If you are born again by the Spirit of God, you have a great reason to break forth into praise, because salvation has come to you in the person of Jesus.
