Come by our place today! We are all drunk.
Our cups are full of wine, and we’re all drunk.
The cup God gave us, it’s running over.
Give thanks, give thanks – ”thanks for this charity!
Come by our place. It’s a celebration!
Our longing now made plain for all to see.
Our lovers came to us in the dark of night”
in our hearts, they left no shame, no anxiety.
“Each held in open Palms a generous sea,”
and scattered jewels for us abundantly.
