    Abstract:
    The unnoticed parallel in question is the modified final refrain of the 'Agnus Dei': 'Grant us thy peace' as translated in the 'Book of Common Prayer', which is replicated in Simeon's repeated 'Grant us thy peace' in the poem under discussion. In the note, I briefly explain what leads us to look for this additional liturgical text, the context for the liturgical use of the ‘Agnus Dei’ and how the tone of the poem is altered as a result.
