Song #118: "Kyrie"--Mr. Mister (1986)

It's the second of two Top 500 entries for the mid-1980's group Mr. Mister, the first, also from 1986, appearing here.

This song made a lot of people investigate (as oppose to Google) the meaning of the term "Kyrie Eleison", a term that appeared in a song we sang in Vocal Ensemble back at Patrick Henry. The answer, essentially, is "Lord, have mercy".

Lord, have mercy down the road that I must travel,
Lord, have mercy through the darkness of the night.....

I suspect many have worshipped over the decades via this pop song from 31 years ago this spring....
