I fell asleep
on a dark and starry sea
with nothing but the cloak
of God's mercy over me

I come upon strangers and a great black cave
I dreamed i awoke as if buried in my grave
We've been swallowed up
We've been swallowed up
Disappeared from this world
We've been swallowed up

Bones of sailors from the north
and sailors from the east
Lay high in a pyre in the valley of a beast
Be should you wander in its path upon your ship and your flesh and son
You've disappeared from this world
Till You've swallowed up

we've been swallowed up
we've been swallowed up
Disappeared from this world
we've been swallowed up

Trust at our skills
and our good sails
put our faith back with God
the righteous in this world prevail

But we've been swallowed up
We've been swallowed up
Disappeared from this world
we've been swallowed up

We've been swallowed up
We've been swallowed up
Disappeared from this world
