In the Depths of the Sea

Micah 7:19  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 7
I will cast in the depths of the fathomless sea
All your sins and transgressions, whatever they be;
Though they mount up to heaven, though they reach down to hell,
They shall sink in the depths, and above them shall swell
All the waves of forgiveness, so mighty and free;
I will cast all your sins in the depths of the sea.
In the deep silent depths far away from the shore,
Where they never shall rise up to trouble thee more,
Where no far-reaching tide with its pitiless sweep
Can stir the dark waves of forgetfulness deep—
I have buried them there, where no mortal can see;
I have cast all your sins in the depths of the sea.
"He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy."
