And Then The Savior Turned

Full Text

1 And then the Savior turned,
On Peter gazing,
A look divine, and yearned
With love amazing.

2 Swiftly to Peter's face
The shame came leaping;
He had denied such grace
And went forth weeping.

3 Lord Jesus, look on me,
Thy kind face turning;
My soul with agony
Of sin is burning.

4 The way is long, I find
My weak steps falling:
O turn, to my dark mind
Thy grace recalling.

5 Oft, oft with contrite eyes
I gaze to heaven;
Then, at Thy look arise
In tears, forgiven.
