Song of Jonah and the Big Fish
One day God put forth the call,
"Jo-nah, go to Nin-e-vah."
There were man-y peo-ple there
Need-ing to hear of God's love.
Jo-nah did not want to go,
He thought he from God could run.
Found a ship and sailed a-way,
But soon knew God had won.
What a storm a-rose that day
And the sea was so rough.
Jonah said, "I am the cause."
And they knew they'd had e-nough.
They threw Jo-nah in the sea
And he thought he'd sure-ly die,
But a fish pre-pared by God
Came and swal-lowed him a-live.
For three days poor Jo-nah prayed
For de-liv-'rance from God's hand.
Then the fish spit him right out,
And he found him-self on land.
He went to great Nin-e-vah,
Preached the word to young and old.
They re-pen-ted and were saved
Be-cause Jo-nah did as told.
When the Lord calls you to go
On a mis-sion that is new.
Don't de-lay, but hear His voice
Lest some e-vil come to you.
You can pray to Him for help,
And for you He'll clear the way.
Ha-sten to o-bey His will.
Our God saves! Our God saves!
