Joseph and Simeon Recitative 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
