O Lord, give me water
My heart is dry
My heart of stone
O Lord, give me flood I prayed
But He sent me my tears

O Lord, give me a bride sometimes
Then I can see the light tonight
O Lord, give me a bride I love
But He sent me my wife

O God, give me wine, I say
'Til I can get drunk on sundays
O Lord give me wine, I said
But He sent me His blood

O God give me God !
'Cause I can't be good
I'm not what You called a "good man"
I'm only good when I complain
How much do you get bored again...

And you gave me gifts I know
You gave me gifts, but I was afraid to win
Wastin' my time for wastin' my time

O God give me wine, I say...
'Till I can get drunk on sundays...
O Lord gimme wine, I said
But He sent me His blood

You gave me gifts I know
While I was looking for a place to hide
Where I could waste my time

Me, I'd have really liked to see You
Naked as Truth, with Your wide open arms
As wide as the sea
And we would have drowned, my Lord,
O yes we would have drowned...
