“Yet I will look again.” Jonah 2. 4; 2 Chron. 6. 38-39

S. Medley   L.M.

1
See a poor sinner, dearest Lord,
Whose soul, encouraged by thy word,
At mercy’s footstool would remain,
And there would look, and look again.

2
How oft deceived by self and pride,
Has my poor heart been turned aside;
And, Jonah like, has fled from thee,
Till thou hast looked again on me!

3
Ah! bring a wretched wanderer home,
And to thy footstool let me come,
And tell thee all my grief and pain,
And wait and look, and look again.

4
Take courage, then, my trembling soul;
One look from Christ shall make thee whole;
Trust thou in him; ’tis not in vain;
But wait and look, and look again.
