Nineveh corrupt and coarse
Set upon evil to obey
Upon the testimony of just one man
Turned to change their way
What brought on this quick remorse?
Made a king – ashes wear?
It was a prophet of the Lord
Who arrived from out the mer
For Jonah reluctant to his duty fulfil
The Lord his heart did convert
And with his mission now complete
Nineveh’s destruction he did avert
