Rocked in the Cradle of the Deep

Melody - Joseph P. Knight, 1840; Seq. by Werner Tomaschewski

Emma Willard

Rocked in the cradle of the deep,
I lay me down in peace to sleep;
Secure I rest upon the wave,
For Thou, O Lord, hast power to save.
I know Thou wilt not slight my call,
For Thou dost mark the sparrow's fall.
|: And calm and peaceful is my sleep,
Rocked in the cradle of the deep. :|
2. And such the trust that still were mine,
Though stormy winds sweep over the brine,
Or though the tempest's fiery breath
Rouse me from sleep to wreck and death,
In ocean cave still safe with Thee,
The germ of immortality.
