Lyrics for Advent:

Kyrie Eleison. Christe Eleison. Kyrie Eleison.
Come to us, and grant your peace.
Week 1. Shepherd of Israel, come, restore your people.
Shine your face on us and save us, God.
Week 2. Comfort, speak tenderly. Gently lead your people.
God, forgive our sins and make us new.
Week 3. Pour out your Spirit, God, Heal the brokenhearted.
Love, prepare our hearts to see your light.
Week 4. Grant us your mercy, God. Fill the poor with good things.
Guide our feet into your way of peace.
