My Sins O The Peace Giving Thought

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.

“Thou wilt cast all their sins into the depths of the sea,”
‘Tis the word of the Lord, and sufficient for me,
Tho’ 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.

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. [Refrain]

No tempest can bring to the light
The sins He has buried for aye,
My soul precious is in His sight,
And He will protect it alway. [Refrain]
