Jonah's Prayer

English

REFRAIN:
Hear my cry, I pray to thee
And to my voice incline your ear
Hold me and have mercy upon me (2)
For you O Lord I'm in great need (2)

1 - My soul is troubled in the deep
And my eyes are full of teaers
Now I remember you indeed (2)
For your salvation is near (2)

2 - All the waves came upon me
I was drowned in the deep sea
I asked for help where it could be (2)
But in the hands of my Lord dear (2)

3 - My heart is trembling in great fear
And my head is wrapped in weeds
Out of the depth I cried to Thee (2)
Save my soul and set me free (2)

4 - God ordered the whale in the sea
To safely drop Jonah in peace
In the whale's belly Jonah kneeled (2)
And thanked the Lord for His great deed (2)
