Encouragement from “Moby Dick” Chpt 9

“I saw the opening maw of hell,
With endless pains and sorrows there;  Which none but they that feel can tell—
Oh, I was plunging to despair.
“In black distress, I called my God,    When I could scarce believe him mine,

He bowed his ear to my complaints—    No more the whale did me confine.
“With speed he flew to my relief, 
As on a radiant dolphin borne;  
Awful, yet bright, as lightning shone    The face of my Deliverer God.
“My songs forever shall record
That terrible, that joyful hour; 
I give the glory to my God,

His all the mercy and the power.”

Reminded me of Jonah who was in the fish belly for 3 days.
