Ideas for use

This is a hymn that works well as a sung prayer of confession. It also lends itself to being accompanied with images relating to the words.

Encourage people to learn the four parts of the Kyrie refrain. Then have a single voice or small group sing the first two verses and have everyone join in the final verse, beginning “Forgive us, Father; hear our prayer.”

The Kyrie eleison refrain can also be sung by itself and interspersed with spoken prayers.

Other examples of hymns that work well as sung prayers of confession include Shirley Erena Murray’s Because you came and sat beside us (StF 420) and Nick and Anita Haigh’s Empty, broken, here I stand (StF 421).

You may also wish to simplify the chord sequence of the verse and chorus and play gently underneath spoken prayers.
