1. Kyrie, Gott Vater in Ewigkeit,
Groß ist dein' Barmherzigkeit,
Aller Ding' ein Schöpfer und Regierer.
Eleison, eleison!

2. 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 Herzensbegier:
Eleison, eleison!

3. Kyrie, Gott Heiliger Geist,
Tröst, stärk uns im Glauben allermeist,
Daß wir am letzten End'
Fröhlich abscheiden aus diesem Elend.
Eleison, eleison! Amen.

1. Kyrie, God, Father eternal,
great is Thy mercy,
of all the Shepherd and Sov'reign.

2. Christe, Comfort of the world,
of sinners our sole Redeemer,
O Jesu, Son of God, our intercessor
to the throne of God,
to Thee we cry, our hearts' desire.

3. Kyrie, God, Holy Spirit,
comfort, strengthen us in faith most of all,
that at our end of days
we may depart in joy from this vale of tears.
