Joshua fit de battle of Jericho

Hymn – Joshua fit de battle of Jericho – Lyrics

Joshua fit de battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho,
Joshua fit de battle of Jericho and the walls come a-tumblin’ down.
Good Morning Sister Mary,
Good morning Brother Joe.
Gonna tell you ‘bout good old Joshua and the battle of Jericho. Oh!
Refrain

You can talk about your king of Gideon,
You can brag about your man of Saul,
But there’s none like good old Joshua for to make dem, old walls fall. Oh!
Refrain

They tell me that the spear of Joshua was well nigh twelve foot tall
And upon his hip was the double-edged sword
And the man was gospel born. Oh!
Refrain

Up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with spear in hand.
“Go blow dem ram’s horns loud and clear
“For the battle am in my hand”. Oh!
Refrain

Then the ram-sheep’s horns ‘gan to blow,
So loudly did they sound.
Then all God’s children shouted out
And the walls come a-tumblin’ down, Oh!
The walls come a-tumblin’ down, Oh!
The walls come a-tumblin’ down!

Joshua fought the battle of Jericho (Joshua fit de battle of Jericho)

Hymn – Joshua fought the battle of Jericho – Lyrics

Refrain
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho.
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho,
And the walls came a tumbling down.

You can talk about your men of Gideon,
You can talk a-bout your men of Saul,
But there’s none like good old Joshua and the battle of Jericho. Oh!
Refrain

Joshua rose early in the morning,
That is when the trumpets blew.
They marched around the city, at the battle of Jericho. Oh!
Refrain

Right up to the walls of Jericho,
He marched with spear in hand,
He commanded the children to SHOUT! and the walls came a tumbling down. Oh!
And the walls came a tumbling down!

King of Glory, King of Peace (Gwalchmai) – Orchestra

King of Glory, King of Peace – Lyrics

King of glory, King of peace,
I will love Thee;
And that love may never cease,
I will move Thee.
Thou hast granted my request,
Thou hast heard me;
Thou didst note my working breast,
Thou hast spared me.

Wherefore with my utmost art
I will sing Thee,
And the cream of all my heart
I will bring Thee.
Though my sins against me cried,
Thou alone didst clear me;
And alone, when they replied,
Thou didst hear me.

Seven whole days, not one in seven,
I will praise Thee;
In my heart, though not in Heaven,
I can raise Thee.
Small it is, in this poor sort
To enroll Thee:
E’en eternity’s too short
To extol Thee.

Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us (Mannheim)

Hymn Lyrics: Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us

Lead us, heavenly Father, lead us
O’er this world’s tempestuous sea
Guard us, guide us, keep us, feed us
For we have no help but thee;
Yet possessing every blessing
If our God our Father be

Saviour, breath forgiveness o’er us:
All our weaknesses thou dost know;
Though didst tread this earth before us,
Thou did feel its keenest woe;
Lone and dreary, faint and weary,
Through the desert thou didst go.

Spirit of our God, descending,
Fill our hearts with heavenly joy,
Love with every passion blending,
Pleasure that can never cloy:
Thus provided, pardoned, guided,
Ever can our peace destroy.

Let all mortal flesh keep silence (Picardy) – Orchestra

Let all mortal flesh keep silence – Lyrics

Let all mortal flesh keep silence,
And with fear and trembling stand;
Ponder nothing earthly minded,
For with blessing in His hand,
Christ our God to earth descendeth,
Our full homage to demand.

King of kings, yet born of Mary,
As of old on earth He stood,
Lord of lords, in human vesture,
In the body and the blood;
He will give to all the faithful
His own self for heavenly food.

Rank on rank the host of heaven
Spreads its vanguard on the way,
As the Light of light descendeth
From the realms of endless day,
That the powers of hell may vanish
As the darkness clears away.

At His feet the six wingèd seraph,
Cherubim with sleepless eye,
Veil their faces to the presence,
As with ceaseless voice they cry:
Alleluia, Alleluia
Alleluia, Lord Most High!

Lift high the Cross (Crucifer)

Hymn – Lift high the Cross – Lyrics

Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim
till all the world adores his sacred name.

1. Come, brethren, follow where our captain trod,
our King victorious, Christ the Son of God.

2. Led on their way by this triumphant sign,
the hosts of God in conquering ranks combine.

3. Each new-born soldier of the Crucified
bears on his brow the seal of him who died.

4. This is the sign which Satan’s legions fear
and angels veil their faces to revere:

5. Saved by the cross whereon their Lord was slain
the sons of Adam their lost home regain.

6. From north and south, from east and west they raise
in growing unison their song of praise.

7. O Lord once lifted on the glorious tree
as thou hast promised, draw us unto thee.

8. Let every race and every language tell
of him who saves our souls from death and hell.

9. From farthest regions let them homage bring
and on his cross adore their Saviour King.

10. Set up thy throne, that earth’s despair may cease
beneath the shadow of its healing peace.

11. For thy blest cross which doth for all atone
creation’s praises rise before thy throne:
Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim
till all the world adores his sacred name.

Lo, he comes with clouds descending (Helmsley)

Lo, He comes with clouds descending Lyrics

Lo! He comes with clouds descending,
Once for mortal sinners slain;
Thousand thousand saints attending,
Swell the triumph of His train:
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Christ appears on earth to reign.

Every eye shall now behold Him
Robed in dreadful majesty;
We who set at naught and sold Him,
Pierced and nailed Him to the tree,
Deeply wailing, deeply wailing, deeply wailing,
Shall the true Messiah see.

The dear tokens of His passion
Still His dazzling body bears;
Cause of endless exultation
To His ransomed worshippers;
With what rapture, with what rapture, with what rapture
Gaze we on those glorious scars!

Yea, Amen! let all adore Thee,
High on Thine eternal throne;
Saviour, take the power and glory,
Claim the kingdom for Thine own;
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!
Thou shalt reign, and thou alone.
