Ayez pitié ae nous, Seigneur !

Language: French (Français)

  Ayez pitié ae nous, Seigneur !
  Christ, ayez pitié de nous !

Donnez-nous la victoire et l'honneur
  Sur l'ennemi de nous tous.
  Ayez pitié de nous, Seigneur.

Rendez-nous plus croyants et plus doux
  Loin du Péché suborneur,
  Christ, ayez pitié de nous.

Criblez-nous comme fait le vanneur
  Du grain dont il est jaloux.
  Ayez pitié de nous, Seigneur.

Nous vous en supplions à genoux,
  Ouvrez-nous par la Foi et le Bonheur.
  Christ, ayez pitié de nous.

Ouvrez-nous par l'Amour le Bonheur,
  Nous vous en prions à genoux.
  Ayez pitié de nous, Seigneur.
Seigneur, par l'Espérance, ouvrez-nous,
  Christ, ouvrez-nous le Bonheur.
  Christ, ayez pitié de nous.

  Ayez pitié de nous, Seigneur !

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
