After Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, “Missa Papae Marcelli: Kyrie”
From earth, from soil, from hearts, from fractures
From death, from fire, from quake, from anguish
From drought that blocks, from self that locks
From sin, from toil, from pride, from hate
From plenty turned to nothing, starving
From world rebelling, fair made foul – Christe eleison
Sing, creation. Sing, dead bones.
Long for what has died to live
Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy –
Long for when He comes again –

Amen–especially to the last line.
