Representative Text

1 Pelas dores deste mundo, ó Senhor,
imploramos piedade.
A um só tempo geme a criação.

2 Teus ouvidos se inclinem ao clamor
desta gente oprimida.
Apressate com tua salvação.
A tua pax,
bendita e irmanada co’a justiça
abrace o mundo inteiro.
Tem compaixão!
O teu poder
sustente o testemunho do teu povo
Teu Reino venha a nos!
Kyrie eleison!

1 For the troubles and the sufferings of the world,
God, we call upon your mercy:
the whole creation’s laboring in pain!

2 Lend an ear to the rising cry for help
from oppressed and hopeless people.
Come! Hasten your salvation, healing love!
We pray for peace,
the blessed peace that comes from making justice,
to cover and embrace us.
Have mercy, Lord!
We pray for power,
the power that will sustain your people’s witness:
until your kingdom comes,
Kyrie eleison!
