Kyrie (Lord, Have Mercy) from the Divine Service of the Church of Finland

Lord, Have Mercy (Kyrie)

Lord God, our heavenly Father,
you have created us, and we are yours;
hear the prayer of your children.
Lord, have mercy.

Lord Jesus Christ, atonement for our sins,
you have risen from the dead;
come and stay among us.
Christ, have mercy.

Holy Spirit, Comforter,
you are the true source of joy;
open our hearts to give you our thanks.
Lord, have mercy.

or

In peace let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For the peace from above
and the salvation of our souls
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For peace to the whole world,
for the endurance and unity
of the Church of God,
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.

For the congregation that meets in this house,
and for all who invoke the name of the Lord,
let us pray to the Lord.
Lord, have mercy.¨

Pardon, defend and protect us.
Lord, have mercy.
