LOOK AGAIN




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


How oft, deceiv’d by self and pride,
Has my poor heart been turn’d aside,
And Jonah-like, has fled from thee,
’Till thou hast look’d again on me.


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.


Do fears and doubts my soul annoy?
Do thund'ring tempests drown thy joy?
And canst thou not one smile obtain?
Yet wait, and look, and look again.


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


Look to the Lord, his word, his throne;
Look to his grace, and not your own;
There wait and look, and look again;
You shall not wait, nor look in vain.


That wish’d-for period soon will come,
When I shall reach my blissful home;
And when to glory I attain,
O then I’ll look, and look again.


---Alternative verses---


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


Ere long that happy day will come, 
When I shall reach my blissful home;
And when to glory I attain,
O then I’ll look, and look again.
