Jonah (Quit Your Belly-Achin'!)
Words and music by Anna Laura Page and Jean Anne Shafferman / orch. Tim Hayden
Alfred Church Choral Series
Unison / 2-Part
What an inventive and setting of the story of Jonah and the whale! Presented in worship, chapel, or Sunday school, "Jonah" may be performed by unison or 2-part voices as a mini-musical drama. Important themes include feeling sorry for yourself, trying to run away from God and responsibility, turning to God in times of distress, and repenting and receiving God’s grace. These themes are as applicable today as they were in biblical times!
