In the Deep

In the Deep

In the deep, in the deep,
Now my heart and my soul have gone down.
May my loved ones' peace our Lord well keep,
As He holds me safe, arms around.

In the deep, in the deep,
Strangely quiet, and warm despite cold,
I have given you my memory to keep,
Though I never now will grow old.

In the deep, in the deep,
Though my body be lost, I am proud.
For I took your love in, long ago, down deep,
And I'll wear it forever as a shroud.
