Rock’d in the cradle of the deep
I lay me down in peace to sleep;
Secure I rest upon the wave
For thou Oh! Lord, hast power to save.
I know thou wilt not slight my call,
For thou dost mark the sparrow’s fall!
Chorus:
And calm and peaceful is my sleep
Rock’d in the cradle of the deep.
And calm and peaceful is my sleep
Rock’d in the cradle of the deep.
And such the trust that still were mine
Tho’ stormy winds sweep over the brine
Or tho’ the tempest’s fiery breath
Rous’d me from sleep to wreck and death!
In ocean cave still safe with Thee,
The germ of immortality;
Chorus:
