I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made bad
I love my God
God made me, yeah

But I don't want to pray to my Maker
I just want to be what I see
Not just who I am, but the pink in golden land
And that wide wild sky over me
Help me to the sun, hey I'm looking everywhere
See I'm looking to become not the prayer, but the prayer
And now don't want to pray (no)
I say I don't want to pray (no)
And now I don't want to pray
I don't want to pray

I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made bad
I love my God
God made, God made

But I don't want to pray to my Maker
I just want to be feeling free
Not like in a book or the leaves of trees that shook
From a word that means only not a thing
Pardon God and Mom, what I'm sayin' isn't fair
See I'm looking to become not the prayer, but the prayer
And now I don't want to pray (no)
I say I don't want to pray (no)
Hey I don't want to pray (no)
You don't want to pray

Not much good to talk, better to walk it
Not much good to take, better to give
We are gone forgiven and forgotten of our sins
Yeah I promise you my friend all that dies will live again

Pardon God and Mom, what I'm sayin' isn't rare
See I'm looking to become not the prayer, but the prayer
And now I don't want to pray (no)
You say I don't want to pray (no)
Oh now I don't want to pray
You don't want to pray

I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made love
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made hate
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made good
I love my God
God made bad
I love my God
God made me
