VP_007815 Verse 1Roll on, thou mighty, deep blue sea, Thy tempests bring no fear to me, Nor do I heed the angry waves; That hide so many wat'ry graves; Tho death may wait within thy deeps My peaceful spirit calmly sleeps; Thanks to immortality, Thanks to immortality, My soul shall rise to Paradise From thy lowest depths, O sea; My soul shall rise to Paradise From thy lowest, from thy lowest depths, O sea. Verse 2Why should I shrink in fear from thee, Tho' mountains wild thy billows be; Shines not a star eternal bright To guide thro' storm and darkest night? And tho' my frail bark may go down, My soul the ocean can not drown. Thanks to immortality, Thanks to immortality, My soul shall rise to Paradise From thy lowest depths, O sea; My soul shall rise to Paradise From thy lowest, from thy lowest depths, O sea.
