This melody this melody 
Flows through me so heavily 
With strengths that brings me to my knees 
Oh lord please 
Bring me some understanding 
Of which my faith can find a clear landing 

Punish me father for I have sinned 
I have stood at the feet of Jesus, and did not kiss them 
I have turned my back on the father, the son and the holy ghost 
and it is you that plead to the most 

Punish me father for I have sinned 
I have given myself to a man that did not love me
I gave birth to a bastard son 
O'lord how I have gambled and not won
Punish me father for I have sinned
