    Verse 1
    My sins, O the peace giving thought,
    Are buried beneath the wild wave,
    Since God in His mercy has brought
    His wonderful power to save

    Chorus
    Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea,
    'Tis the word of the Lord, and sufficient for me,
    Though the billows may roar and may break on the shore,

    They are lost in its depths, and can reach me no more,
    Of the place where they're buried, only God holds the key,
    In the depths, the depths of the sea.

    Verse 2
    No more shall they rise to distress
    Or trouble the peace of my soul,
    As o'er them in power to bless
    God's waves of forgiveness shall roll

    Chorus
    Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea,
    'Tis the word of the Lord, and sufficient for me,
    Though the billows may roar and may break on the shore,

    They are lost in its depths, and can reach me no more,
    Of the place where they're buried, only God holds the key,
    In the depths, the depths of the sea.

    Verse 3
    No tempest can bring to the light
    The sins He buries for aye
    My soul precious is in His sight,
    And He will protect it alway

    Chorus
    Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea,
    'Tis the word of the Lord, and sufficient for me,
    Though the billows may roar and may break on the shore,

    They are lost in its depths, and can reach me no more,
    Of the place where they're buried, only God holds the key,
    In the depths, the depths of the sea.
