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!

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!
