Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho

 

This was one of my favorite songs when I was little, maybe because it has my name. 🙂 This Christian song (African-American Spiritual) is about God’s servant, Joshua, and his followers fighting the evil city of Jericho, described in the Book of Joshua. I like guitars, and Rick Foster plays it very well here! (Sorry, you have to click on the link!)

Lyrics:  (From Genius Lyrics)

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls came tumblin’ down

You may talk about your man of Gideon
You may talk about your man of Saul
There’s none like good old Joshua
At the battle of Jericho

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls came tumblin’ down

‘way up to the walls of Jericho
He marched with a spear in hand
“go blow the ram’s horn,” Joshua cried
“’cause the battle is in my hands”

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls came tumblin’ down

Then the lamb, ram, sheep horns began to blow
And the trumpets began to sound
And Joshua commanded the children to shout
And the walls came down
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho
And the walls came tumblin’ down

(P.S. – My muscles are still aching from the battle… just kidding. 🙂 )
