the first-born of all creation:
Lord, have mercy.        (or Kyrie eleison sung)
Lord, have mercy.

Jesus, you are God’s true child, born of Mary:
Christ, have mercy.      (or Christe eleison sung)
Christ, have mercy.

Jesus, you are Word made flesh, full of grace and truth:
Lord, have mercy.        (or Kyrie eleison sung)
Lord, have mercy.

Radiant God,
you send your light
into dark and shackled lives;
shine in our hearts
and set us free to praise you,
now and for ever. Amen.
