Agnus Dei - Poem by Bill Mitton

AGNUS DEI
qui tolis peccata mundi.
You made us in your own image
yet we hurt and kill each other.
You came and offered us love
Yet we gave you pain and death
miserere nobis.

AGNUS DEI
qui tolis peccata mundi.
You gave us the miracle of life
Yet we kill it casually in the womb
You gave us children in trust
Yet we exploit them everywhere
miserere nobis.

AGNUS DEI
qui tolis peccata mundi.
You gave us the earth to hold
yet we broke it before your eyes
You gave us the gift of heaven
And we threw it back in your face.
Take our troubled hearts Lord
dona nobis pacem.
Agnus dei…….dona nobis pacem
