Now That I've Held Him In My Arms

This song is by Michael Card and appears on the album Legacy (1983).

An old man in the temple
Waiting in the court
Waiting for the answer to a promise
And all at once he sees them
In the mornin' sunshine
A couple comin', carryin' a baby

Now that I've held Him in my arms
My life can come to an end
Let Your servant now depart in peace
Cause I've seen Your salvation
He's the Light of the Gentiles
And the glory of His people, Israel

Mary and the baby come
And in her hand five shekels
The price to redeem her baby boy
The baby softly cooing
Nestled in her arms
Simeon takes the boy and starts to sing

Now that I've held Him in my arms
My life can come to an end
Let Your servant now depart in peace
Cause I've seen Your salvation
He's the Light of the Gentiles
And the glory of His people, Israel

Now's the time to take Him in your arms
Your life will never come to an end
He's the only way that you'll find peace
He'll give you salvation
'Cause He's the Light of the Gentiles
And the glory of His people, Israel
