Northumbria Community – Kyrie Eleison

Here are the lyrics of this very special Celtic spirit song from the Northumbria Community, around the Holy Island of Lindisfarne, in the north-east of England, at the border with Scotland.

* * *

Empty, broken here I stand – Kyrie eleison
Touch me with your healing hand – Kyrie eleison
Take my arrogance and pride – Kyrie eleison
Wash me in your mercies tide – Kyrie eleison

Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison

When my faith has all but gone – Kyrie eleison
Give me strength to carry on – Kyrie eleison
When my dreams have turned to dust – Kyrie eleison
In you, Oh Lord, I put my trust – Kyrie eleison

Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison

When my heart is cold as ice – Kyrie eleison
Your love speaks of sacrifice – Kyrie eleison
Love that sets the captives free – Kyrie eleison
Oh pour compassion down on me – Kyrie eleison

Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison

You’re the voice that calms my fears – Kyrie eleison
You’re the laughter dries my tears – Kyrie eleison
You’re my music, my refrain – Kyrie eleison
Help me sing your song again – Kyrie eleison

Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison

Humble heart of holiness – Kyrie eleison
Kiss me with your tenderness – Kyrie eleison
Jesus faithful friend and true – Kyrie eleison
All I am, I give to you – Kyrie eleison

Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison
Kyrie eleison, Christe eleison, Kyrie eleison
