Good Friday Kyrie

Let us all cry with one voice,
Lord, have mercy.

You were led like a sheep to be crucified,
Lord, have mercy.

From the cross you looked on your mother and your disciple. Look on us from heaven with pity,
Lord, have mercy.

By the shedding of your blood you redeemed the world.
Lord, have mercy.

You commended your spirit to your Father,
Lord, have mercy.

By your cross grant us forgiveness,
Lord, have mercy.
