Lyrics

Rejoice ye with sing­ing who trust in the Lord:
Go tell His sal­va­tion with hap­py ac­cord;
He saith in His mer­cy to you and to me,
Your sins shall be cast in­to the depths of the sea.

Refrain

Into the sea, Cal­va­ry’s sea,
His love is an ocean, so bound­less and free;
Into the sea, Cal­va­ry’s sea,
Our sins shall be cast in­to the depths of the sea.

O seek Him be­liev­ing the word of His grace,
And find in the Sav­ior, the light of His face;
There shin­eth His Gos­pel, the sha­dows will flee;
Our sins shall be cast in­to the depths of the sea.

Refrain

The bur­den so hea­vy, at Cal­va­ry fell,
For Christ is our ran­som, and now all is well;
Yea, brok­en the bonda­ge, hence­forth we are free;
Our sins shall be cast in­to the depths of the sea.

Refrain

Then glad be our ser­vice; to give day by day,
Love’s will­ing al­le­giance to all He may say;
We’ll sing in His glo­ry, there ev­er to be,
Our sins shall be cast in­to the depths of the sea.

Refrain
