It's "Señor, ten piedad."
"May the Lord our God remember in His kingdom all Holy Catholic Apostolic Church, which heralds the Word of Truth and fearlessly offers and distributes the Holy Oblation despite human deficiencies and persecutions moved by the powers of this world, in all time and unto the ages of ages."

Anyhow when God was asked he said Eastern Orthodox is true Church and not Catholic Church. So come home and enjoy.

I can confirm it's "ten".

Now, I am researching and I found both forms, maybe the ''tened'' form can be used when adressing God.

interestingly I know how to say it in Latin but I forgot to put it in! 

if there are any devout orthodox among you reading this I know the prayer in Latin because while researching western rite orthodoxy I practised western rite worship!!!

Second person plural pronouns were current in the Iberian languages-speaking word to adress people of higher statute, but they have nowadays disappeared in that sense outside of religious language. Some Spanish American countries inherited the pronoun "vos" from that old form, but it's not formal and it works a bit differently.

Right, so shouldn't it be "Senhor, tende piedade" in Portuguese?  How is it said in your church?

"Senhor, tem piedade." We don't use the Roman Catholic tradition of "vós" to God, which is weird since "tu" is used in the Vulgate, and also probably just recently widespread since reading the Bible and praying Mass in Portuguese among Roman Catholics is a recent thing.

Well, the plural form is usually proper to royalty.  Curiously, "tu" and "vós" were familiar pronouns, with "você" being formal.  This is still so in European Portuguese.  This was so in archaic English too, but nowadays it is reversed as well.

"Você" is a modern thing (XVII century), I believe "vós" worked both as plural informal/formal and singular formal, plus many formalities were shown using "vosso/vossa" + some virtue, specially "vossa mercê", which eventually became "você". All Iberian Latin languages formed their pronouns this way, but it's a relatively recent areal development across languages rather than an ancient trait.

In some parts of Brazil tu/você are still used as back in the same country, but with messed up grammar. In some like Rio, there are four levels in some sense: tu, cê, você, o senhor.

Does anyone have any good links to actual audio pronunciations of various "Kyrie" translations? It's obviously pretty easy to find some of the "larger" languages like Greek, Russian, Arabic, Romanian, etc, but it's much harder to find something like...Korean or Chinese.

It's easier to find such things, if you know at least basics of the langauge, that's obvious. There are recordings of Orthodox services and prayers in really different languages, so it's jstu about knowdlge how to find them - I mean, knowledge of the language, because only in some cases wiriting in English such thigns as "Orthodox Japanese" can be helpful. It's also easier to catch the words and proper pronunciation, if, again, you know at least basics of the language.
For example Korean:
