Kyrie Gott Vater in Ewigkeit,
gross ist dein Barmherzigkeit,
aller Ding ein Schöpfer und Regierer, eleison.

Christe aller Welt Trost, uns Sünder allein du hast erlöst.
O Jesu, Gottes Sohn, unser Mittler bist in dem höchsten Thron,
zu dir schreien wir aus Herzens Begier, eleison.

Kyrie Gott heiliger Geist,
tröst, stärk uns im Glauben allermeist,
dass wir am letzten End fröhlich uns scheiden aus diesem Elend, eleison.
