in my distress i called to the Lord,
and he answered me.
from the depths of the grave i called for help,
and you listened to my cry.

i have been banished from your sight;
yet i will look again toward your holy temple.

you hurled me into the deep,
into the very heart of the seas,
and the currents swirled about me;
all your waves and breakers swept over me.

i have been banished from your sight;
yet i will look again toward your holy temple.

i have been banished from your sight
(yet i will look toward your holy temple)
i have been banished from your sight
(yet i will look toward your holy temple)

    General Commentthis song is from Jonah 2:2-3. it's good because it lets us know that even when we are so far away from God and doing the worst things, he is wating for us to just ask for him back and he will save us from death.
