Sweet concord mellow wine
Loosening my tongue
As I tell all

Sweet concord mellow wine quiets me!
And as you claim you are mine
I ask, 'Lord why me'?
'I asked for roses and you set me a tree'!

In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
