Nineveh was the place, God wanted me to go.
But I ran and told God no.
For Nineveh, was a wicked city.
Very sinful, and not pretty.
I saw a ship, and I climbed aboard.
I was a man on the run, running from the Lord.
The ship was caught in a storm.
It was my fault, I did inform.
It was because I ran from the Lord.
I told the crew to cast me overboard.
Then, I was swallowed by a whale.
Now that right there is a true fish tale.
Three days in the whale’s belly, I did stay.
I, Jonah, began to pray.
I told God, that if He would get me out.
I would go to Nineveh, without a second doubt.
The whale got sick and spewed me out.
Then I headed to the Nineveh route.
I, Jonah, the man, that God sent
was astonished as I saw, each one began to repent.
