Here’s a closing benediction based on the Song of Simeon (Luke 2: 29-32). It was written by Bruce Prewer.
Going On Our Way with Confidence
(based on Luke 2:22-40)
Loving God, now your servants may go in peace,
just as your word has promised;
for our own eyes have seen your salvation
made ready with everyone looking on,
a revealing light for outsiders,
and a glory for all your faithful people.
Grace mercy and peace,
from the Creator, Saviour and Counsellor,
with you now and ever more. Amen!
