Into the heart of the seas,
And the current ▼
▼ Lit surroundedengulfed me.

Nevertheless I will look again k toward Your holy temple.’

But You have r brought up my life from ▼
▼ Or corruptionthe pit, O Lord my God.

▼ Lit my soul...within meI was u fainting away,
I v remembered the Lord,
And my w prayer came to You,
Into x Your holy temple.
