Verse 1

When the king of Nineveh heard

that Jehovah God would destroy them,

he rose up from his throne, took off his robe,

put on sackcloth and sat in ashes,

said man and beast would wear them too,

no man could taste anything,

but would earnestly implore God.

Pre-chorus 1

The king proclaimed that each one

would turn from evil ways,

forsake the violence in their hands.

Chorus

The king of Nineveh showed great repentance,

accomplishing what a ruler should.

His actions were hard for kings to achieve,

unheard of in human history.

They’re worthy of commemoration, to be imitated by mankind.

Verse 2

Since the dawn of man,

all kings have led their subjects to resist and oppose God.

None had led them to ask God

to save them from their wicked ways,

to pardon them, avoiding punishment.

But the king of Nineveh led his subjects to God,

leaving their violence and evil ways.

Pre-chorus 2

He also gave up his throne,

so God turned back His wrath,

all could live away from destruction.

Chorus

The king of Nineveh showed great repentance,

accomplishing what a ruler should.

His actions were hard for kings to achieve,

unheard of in human history.

They’re worthy of commemoration, to be imitated by mankind.

Bridge

What a miracle in history!

The king’s way will be noted as a way man should confess and repent before God.

Chorus

The king of Nineveh showed great repentance,

accomplishing what a ruler should.

His actions were hard for kings to achieve,

unheard of in human history.

They’re worthy of commemoration, to be imitated by mankind.
