Drown Me

In the gentle ripples of Your faithfulness
Drown me.

In the wild lapping of Your jealousy
Drown me.

In the raucous crashing of Your laughter
Drown me.

In the sea of your steadfast love
In the waves that sing like the heaves and sighs of cellos
Drown me.

In the wine that I hold
In the blood red cup
          sweeter than summer roses
Drown me.
