(It's better to obey than have stubborn silliness)



Was swallowed by a fish

And had to sit in slimy squish;

He threw up to God an earnest wish

To be free, to see the light again.


God told Jonah,

“Get up and tell this wicked city

That on them I do have pity

If they repent!"


But he wasted money on his trip

He flew (in) o’er the whale’s big lip

And its huge tongue that was YUCK

He wound up in slimy muck


All because he stopped his ears

And listened to his angry fears

Instead of to his God, the LORD.

He rested underneath a gourd.


Hey, hey Jonah!

Why’re you worried about that gourd?

Rejoice in the mercy of the sovereign

Gracious LORD!
