And put out their lightnings! More than once in a course,
Through the ocean I went wading after the whale,
And stirred up the bottom as did never a gale.

Each mountain sink into a plain,
The seas themselves shall, on that day, grow dry — The worms that in the waters creep,
The fish and monsters of the deep,
Shall in the bottom of the ocean die.
