Rutter, an Anglican , set many biblical texts for Christian services. The format of the text is based in a similar format to that found in some Celtic Christian prayers and songs, such as those found in the Christian-era Scottish Gaelic collection, the Carmina Gadelica. Rutter has said that his English-only composition is based on "an old Gaelic rune", and that he added a line mentioning Jesus and the word Amen, to make it also a Christian anthem. The choir voices enter together, with the lower voices also moving slowly like the left hand a full measure for "Deep", another one for "peace" , while the soprano pronounces "peace" sooner and moves up in eighth-notes on "running wave".
