lyrics

You cast me out into the deep
And there your floods surround
I sank beneath the raging sea
As billows crashed around

The Psalm of Jonah, Jonah 2:2-9
-
Verse 1:
I was thrown out from your sight
And I was driven away
I know I will see with my eyes
Again your holy place

Chorus:
I called to God in my distress
He has heard my voice
I cried to him out of the depths
He answered my call
He answered my call

Verse 2:
The waters closed in over me
They came to bring me death
I was covered up by the deep
Weeds choked out my breathe
I sank down to
The mountain roots
The earth had locked me in
Just as the grave sealed up its gates
You saved me from the pit

Verse 3:
As my life fainted away
I remembered you my God
All those who hope in idols vain
Forsake their hope of love

Chorus 2:
With my voice I will give thanks
A sacrifice to you
What I have vowed I now will pay
Salvation comes from you
Salvation comes from you
Salvation comes from you
