Deep Calls to Deep

Deep calls to deep, and my soul finds no resting place but Him He is my God; And the yearning of my soul His touch can still. Chorus:  And each rare moment I felt His presence I shall remember and forever cherish. Verse 2: Deep calls to deep, and at His feast I am a welcomed guest He gives me food; the hunger of my soul is laid to rest. Verse 3: Deep calls to deep, for He created me to be His own He understands; the joy and pain of life He too has known.
This hymn about the depth of God's presence was written by English teacher and musician Estelle White (1925-2011).

It was published in the 20th Century Folk Hymnal, volume 4, which was released in 1978.

The tune is unnamed, and has a cut-time signature.   It was originally scored in the key of C, and the first few notes in this key are E cB A A d c B A.

The song has subsequently been covered by Canadian musician Steve Bell, who learned it at a Jesuit seminary in India (ref), and other artists, eg Mary-Kathryn.

However it is different from the contempoary workship song recorded by Matt Redman, the song by Lenny Smith, and from another song by an unknown writer which starts "From the depths of my soul" - all both have the same title.
