Joseph and Simeon Recitative Song Lyrics

Mary and Joseph take their baby,
Jesus, to present Him at the Temple
and fulfill the law of the Scriptures.
They approach one of the priests.
From a distance, Simeon recognizes
who Jesus is and runs to them.
JOSEPH: We are Mary and Joseph
of Nazareth
We've come to present our first
born son
SIMEON: Praise be to God, I
recognize Him
He is the Holy One
I am Simeon, led by God
I've been appointed
To bless this Child revealed
To be The Anointed
Though a sword will pierce
your soul
You have been entrusted with
His care
Through Him hearts will
be revealed
And men will speak against
Him everywhere
