Lord have mercy.
Jesus said: “The one to whom little is forgiven, loves little.”*
Kyrie eleison, Lord have mercy.
Jesus said, “Which do you prefer I say: ‘Rise, take your bed, and walk’? — or ‘Your sins are forgiven’?”**
Kyie eleison, Lord have mercy.
Worm your way into our hearts, O Christ.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness. Drive the dark of doubt away.***
So mercy may explode in gladness, and gladness heal the earth.
Alleluia, joy to every heart!
