Kyrie eleison

Kyrie eleison.

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!
