I fled from you
I fled to the sea
In hopes that you
Would forget about me
But the storms would ensue
How could I run from you?

Cause Mountains quake
And melt away
Nations fall, the sun will fade
But the Lord our God remains
And storms will rage
As skies will drain
At the might of His hand
And the power in His command
As I tremble in fear

Beneath the waves
My chosen fate
And tossed to sea
To the belly of the beast
But You heard my cry
And spared my life

I called you out to that wicked city
Now deliver these words I give to you
I’ve seen graceless deeds and lack of pity
There is consequence for the things they do

The second time you would not disobey
My words blazing forth from your lips like fire
With ashes and with shame they turned from their way
To forgive was always my desire

Is it right for you to be so angry?
Yes it was I who cursed your blessed leaf
You cared not for an entire city
And you would rather die in petty grief

I rescued you from the jaws of the sea
And yet still you know nothing of mercy
