Singing Jonah’s Prayer

Jump to Comments

Due to the sovereignty of God, I have had Jonah’s prayer from the belly of the great fish in Jonah 2 preached to me twice in the past two weeks, first by Brian Phillips at Holy Trinity Reformed Church in Concord, NC on November 21, and then by Gene Liechty at Christ Church in Cary, NC on November 28.  I thought to myself, “you know, we should sing this.”  I converted the prayer into verse (in the unusual meter of 8 5. 10 5. 8 7. 7 9) and set it to music.  You can find the results (in PDF, along with MP3 files you you can learn it) below:
