Holy, Righteous Simeon the God-Receiver

Troparion — Tone 4

Simeon the Elder is filled with joy today, / receiving into his arms the Eternal God as an infant. / Begging to be released from the bonds of the flesh he cries: / “My eyes have seen the salvation, / which You have prepared for all the nations to see!”

Kontakion — Tone 3

Let the godly pair be praised together: / Simeon the Righteous and Anna the Prophetess, well-pleasing to God. / They became witnesses of the Incarnate Lord / when they saw Him as an infant; / together they worshipped Him.
