Sign of the Prophet Jonas

Three days Jesus’ body lay
in a temporary tomb,
dark as the belly of a fish,
terrible as ocean depths where bands 
of death wrapped about Jonah’s head.  
Staying tempests of destruction,
rising from corruption, He showed 
a Nineveh-wicked world
that salvation is of the Lord.
