Kyrie, God, Father in heav'n above,
You abound in gracious love,
Of all things the maker and preserver.
Eleison, eleison!
Kyrie, O Christ, our king,
Salvation for all you came to bring.
O Lord Jesus, God's own Son,
Our mediator at the heav'nly throne,
Hear our cry and grant our supplication.
Eleison, eleison!
Kyrie, O God the Holy Ghost,
Guard our faith, the gift we need the most,
And bless our life's last hour
That we leave this sinful world with gladness.
Eleison, eleison!
