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!

Michael row the boat ashore

Lyrics

Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah

Sister help to trim the sail, hallelujah
Sister help to trim the sail, hallelujah

The river is deep and the river is wide, hallelujah
Green pastures on the other side, hallelujah

Jordan’s river is chilly and cold, hallelujah
Chills the body but not the soul, hallelujah

The river is deep and the river is wide, hallelujah
Milk and honey on the other side, hallelujah

The trumpets sound the jubilee, hallelujah
The trumpets sound for you and me, hallelujah

Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah
Michael row the boat ashore, hallelujah

This little light of mine

Hymn – This little light of mine – Lyrics

This little light of mine, I’m gon’na to let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gon’na to let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gon’na to let it shine,
Let shine, let it  shine, let it shine.

The light that shines is the light of love;
Lights the darkness from above.
It shines on me and it shines on you,
And show what the power of love can do.
Gon’na shine my light both far and near,
Gon’na shine my light both bright and clear.
If there’s a dark corner in this land,
I’m gonna let my little light shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gon’na to let it shine. . .  

On Monday, He gave me the gift of love;
Tuesday, peace came from above.
On Wednesday he told me to have more faith;
On Thursday He gave me a little more grace.
Friday, He told me to watch and pray
Saturday, He told me just what to say,
On Sunday He gave me the power divine
To let my little light shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gon’na to let it shine. . .
