Kyrie Eleison.

James 5

 by Mandi Mapes

 let the rich cry now

 for the silver hidden in our pockets

let the Church fall down

in her moth-eaten dress and her arms full of gold

let Your bride be found

with her eyes on the promise of a Kingdom

 though the day goes long

there’s a calm in my soul for the day is coming soon

 so open our eyes ’till every man can see

 that we are fading fast along with everything

 one life to give and the whole world in need

will we die in our religion or set the captives free

 let the lost come home

 for the prayers of the saints are without ending

 let the earth praise His name

 for the snake that was cursed and the Lamb that was slain

 the day is near

when every heart will fear

 no more lies and no more tears

 Christ will shine like the day

 and every tongue will say

glory to the Lamb that was slain

 Kyrie Eleison (Lord have mercy on us)
