Rocked In The Cradle of The Deep

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.
