Kyrie Eleison

I wanted to share a simple song I wrote for the season of Lent (or anytime, really) that serves as a song of confession and prayer to God. The chord chart, lead sheet, and video are at the bottom of this post.

The chorus (with the women singing the echo) is:

Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy)
Christe Eleison (Christ have mercy)
Kyrie Eleison
Lord have mercy

And the verses, loosely based off of some of the verses from Psalm 51 are:

Have mercy on me
For I am a sinner
In need of a Savior
Have mercy on me, O God
According to Your steadfast love

Cleanse me from my sin
For I know my failures
And my sinful nature
Cleanse me from my sin, O God
And I will sing your endless praise
