Kyrie Eleison

Lord, have mercy, have mercy on me.
           I have sinned,
           I have fallen,
           I am far from grace.
Alone, deeply toned in repentance
I merge my soul with yours, oh Lord.
Mingling my emptiness with your
, promises
with your magnificent love.
Lord have mercy, have mercy on me.
           I have destroyed
           the goodness
           you filled in me.
Adrift in the world of human space
I empty my heart of salvation, oh God.
Masking my faith with indifference,
           with anger, with doubts.
Lord have mercy, have mercy on me.
           I have become
           a caricature
           of a man.
lost in space, in the universe.
My soul yearning for the peace
           I used to find in You.
Seeking You, sweet Lord.
Lord have mercy, have mercy on me.
