Jonah's Journey

Jonah's Journey is a song from Jonah: An Overboard Adventure! and was also featured in A Very Veggie Family Adventure .

Jonah was a prophet, he had a job to do,

Go to Nineveh 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

Thrown into the waters, he tried his best to swim ,

And when the storm had passed, a fish had swallowed him

Jonah sat inside the 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 grey fish bit Jonah, out upon the ground,

Jonah had a second chance to spread God's love around

"Jonah please obey, trust in what I say."

God asked his servant Jonah in His very special way

On to Nineveh, he went, preaching what God said,

Serving God by teaching, His Word to all was spread

The king said, "God is loved, 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 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."

  • During the fourth chorus, the lyrics in the music video are different from the album lyrics. They are as follows:

Jonah went on a journey, but didn't really know We can share God's words with those 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

Veggie Tales – Jonah's Journey lyrics

Jonah was a prophet, He had a job to do, Go to Nineveh 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 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 didn't 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 passed, A fish had swallowed him, Jonah sat inside the 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 him grace and mercy, And kindness from above, The great fish that ate Jonah, Spit him out upon the ground, Jonah had another 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 Nineveh he went, Preaching what God said, Serving God by teaching, His word to all was spread, The king said God is loved, Give up your evil ways, The people asked forgiveness, And prayed to God for days, God showed them compassion, He want to help them out, He is a loving God who cares, Even when in doubt

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 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

Meaning of Jonah’s Journey by VeggieTales

"Jonah’s Journey" by VeggieTales is a song that tells the story of Jonah, a prophet who was given a task by God to go to Nineveh and teach the people there. However, Jonah is hesitant and decides to run away instead. This initial act of disobedience sets off a chain of events that ultimately lead Jonah back on the path that God has set for him.

The song highlights the theme of obedience and following God's plan, even when it may be challenging or unclear. Jonah's reluctance to go to Nineveh represents human resistance to change and the fear of stepping out of one's comfort zone. Through his journey, Jonah learns the importance of trust and surrendering to God's will.

The lyrics mention how Jonah's decision to run away causes a mighty storm to arise, endangering the ship he is on. This emphasizes the consequences of disobedience and the impact it can have on others. The sailors and captain, who are unaware of Jonah's disobedience, call out to him as their last hope for survival. In a moment of desperation, Jonah realizes the only way to save the others is by sacrificing himself and being thrown overboard.

This act of selflessness leads Jonah to be swallowed by a fish. Inside the belly of the fish, Jonah prays for salvation and repents for his disobedience. It is here that he experiences a transformation and finds redemption. The fish serves as both a punishment for Jonah's disobedience and a place of refuge where he can reflect and find his way back to God.

The song goes on to describe how Jonah is spit out by the fish and given another chance by God. Armed with the lessons he has learned, Jonah finally goes to Nineveh and preaches God's message of repentance. To his surprise, the people of Nineveh respond positively, turning away from their evil ways and seeking forgiveness from God. The story showcases God's capacity for compassion and mercy towards those who are willing to change and seek His guidance.

Towards the end of the song, Jonah's emotions come into play again as he becomes angry when a plant given to him by God is destroyed by a worm. This incident serves as a reminder that God's plans and purposes may not always align with our desires or expectations. Jonah's anger reflects his limited understanding of God's ways, and God gently reminds him of His care for all of His people.

Overall, "Jonah’s Journey" teaches important lessons about obedience, trust, and the capacity for growth and change. It emphasizes that even in the face of uncertainty or resistance, following God's path will lead to redemption, transformation, and a greater understanding of God's love and mercy.
