Song Lyrics


Jonah, Job & Moses
by Bill & Gloria Gaither, The Oak Ridge Boys

Album: A Gospel Journey


(Verse 1:)
They were solid as a rock and stubborn as a stone
Honest to the core and ornery to the bone

(Pre-Chorus A:)
And the Good Book says
Their lot in life was not a bed of roses
For Jonah, Job and Moses.

(Verse 2:)
Now Jonah knew the darkness in the belly of a whale,
And Job saw tribulation and Moses went through hell.

(Pre-Chorus B:)
There were tears and fears and heartaches
In big and bigger doses
For Jonah, Job and Moses.

1st Chorus:
And me, I'm just a struggling soul,
Ten thousand years removed.
I've been lost out in the desert;
I've been swallowed and consumed.

And I pray to God for patience;
Make me more like those three.
Help me survive my troubles.
Let me join that band of brothers.
Let it be Jonah, Job, Moses and me.

Bridge:
I've battled with some demons and I've lost the ones I've loved.
I shook my fist at Jesus and I could not rise above.
It was in the anger of those hours, I came to feel the closest to Jonah, Job and Moses.

Chorus Two:
Cause me, I'm just a struggling soul,
Ten thousand years removed.
I've been lost out in the desert;
I've been swallowed and consumed.

And I pray to God for patience,
Make me more like those three.
Help me survive my troubles.
Let me join that band of brothers,
Let it be Jonah, Job, Moses and me.
Lord let it be Jonah, Job, Moses and me.

(Ending:)
They were solid as a rock
And stubborn as a stone.
