Jonah was a prophet
He had a job to do
Go to Niniva and teach
But Jonah said teach who
He didn't wanna go
Instead he ran the other way
Jonah jumped aboard a ship
And sailed it far away
The wind blew hard
A mighty storm came through
The seamen and the captain
Did not know what to do
They called out to Jonah
We will surely die
Toss me overboard
Said Jonah with a cry
Jonah went on a journey
But did he really know
God wants us to follow Him
Wherever we may go
Walk walk walk with God
Walking in God's way
We can learn to do what's right
Every single day
He fell into the waters
He tried his best to swim
And when the storm had past
A fish had swallowed him
Jonah sat inside that fish
And he began to pray
Hoping for salvation
To be granted on that day
Jonah got another chance
Because of God's love
He showed them grace and mercy
And kindness from above
The great fish spit Jonah
Out upon the ground
Jonah had second chance
To spread God's love around
Jonah went on a journey
But did he really know
God wants us to follow him
Wherever we may go
Walk walk walk with God
Walking in God's way
We can learn to do what's right
Every single day
Jonah please obey
Trust in what I say
God asked his servant Jonah
In His very special way
On to Niniva he went
Preaching what God said
Serving God by teaching
His word to all was spread
The king said God is love
Give up your evil ways
The people asked forgiveness
And prayed to God for days
God showed them compassion
He wants to help them out
He is a loving God that cares
Even when we doubt
Jonah went on a journey
But did he really know
God wants us to follow him
Wherever we may go
Walk walk walk with God
Walking in God's way
We can learn to do what's right
Every single day
Jonah got quite angry
He could not understand
He left the great city
And doubted God's plan
God provided him with shade
And Jonah was so pleased
He sat and waited judgment
On the city in a breeze
He wasn't very happy
When a worm came up and ate
The vine that God had given him
To sit beside and wait
Why are you angry
God wanted to know
I care about my people
Who need to learn and grow
Jonah went on a journey
But did he really know
God wants us to follow him
Wherever we may go
Walk walk walk with God
Walking in God's way
We can learn to do what's right
Every single day
Jonah went on a journey
But did he really know
God wants us to follow him
Wherever we may go
Walk walk walk with God
Walking in God's way
We can learn to do what's right
Every single day
