Sweep the Heavens

Sweep the Heavens clean of saints as mediator
Clean the Earth of Priests as mediators
And stand in the presence of the one mediator
Able to save to the uttermost
One priest alone can pardon me
And bid my burdens and sorrows cease
Can breathe the words: Absolvo te
And bid (my sorrows cease) me go in peace
My soul hath heard His priestly voice
He said “I bore thy sins, Rejoice.”
