Now God told Jonah to go up To a city where he should show up Tell the people the place was gonna blow up For all the evil they’d done But Jonah knew that God was kind And if the people repented, they might find That God was gonna change his mind And forgive them for what they’d done So Jonah had to go deep down In the whale he had to go deep down In the water he had to go deep down To see what was in his heart (2x) But God had a plan to send his son To accomplish the work of redemption To undo all the bad that had been done And show a new way to live So Jesus descended from heaven To show God’s love for all nations Through the act of his crucifixion He gave up his life to forgive And Jesus chose to go deep down In the tomb he chose to go deep down In the grave he chose to go deep down To show the love in his heart (2x) And now we have a decision To accept the gift of salvation Or carry the weight of all our sin Till we fall down onto our knees If we taste forgiveness through God’s grace It’s gonna put a smile upon our face We can share God’s love for this whole race Including our enemies Cause Jonah didn’t stay deep down And Jesus didn’t stay deep down And we don’t have to stay deep down If Jesus lives in our hearts (2x) WORDS: Greg Stump MUSIC: Justin Sinclair & Greg Stump © 2016 Redeemer Worship
