Russian Kyrie

(Confession, Prayer)
The words 'Kyrie eleison' are Greek and mean 'Lord, have mercy'. These words are often said or sung during a time of confession or prayer. The 'Kyrie' is traditionally sung in communion services, to remind us that we need to humble ourselves before God and ask forgiveness.  This version is set to a simple Russian chant and can be sung in English or Greek.
