1 Behold a sinner, gracious Lord,
Whose soul encourag'd by thy word,
At mercy's footstool would remain,
And there would look, and look again.
2 How oft deceiv'd by self and pride,
Has my vile heart been turn'd aside;
And Jonah like has fled from thee,
Till thou hast look'd 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 will make thee whole
Trust thou in him, 'tis not in vain,
But wait and look, and look again.
5 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.
6 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.
