For Jonah, it began with a word
to travel for awhile
and preach against the vile
but he pretended he hadn’t heard.

We know the Biblical story
swallowed by the whale
it’s quite a tale
that ends in God’s glory.

But do you know why he up and ran?
He thought the vile did not deserve
the mercy in God’s reserve
like he did… a holy and upright man.

Today I choose to shout on high
about God's great grace
to the whole human race
After all, there may be a whale nearby.
