Been down into the sea;

Been down into the sea. [Refrain]

Been down into the sea;
The glories of Immanuel?
Been down into the sea. [Refrain]

3 If you don't believe I've been redeemed,
Been down into the sea;
Just watch my face for the gospel gleam,
Been down into the sea. [Refrain]

Been down into the sea;
I'm purchased by the dying Lamb,
Been down into the sea. [Refrain]
