141. Let Me Die Like Simeon Died.
W. H. J. Macdade. Luke 2: 29.
1 I'm born of God, indeed I am,
O let me die like Simeon died;
Sinner, deny it if you can,
Just let me die like Simeon died.
Let me die, let me die,
Just let me die like Simeon died. Repeat.
2 While shepherds to their flocks attend,
The angels brought good news to them.
3 In Jerusalem at his post,
See Simeon filled with the Holy Ghost.
