Joshua Fit the Battle of Jericho


(African American Spiritual)

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho,
Jericho, Jericho,
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho,
And the walls came tumbling down.

1. You may talk about the kings of Gideon,
You may talk about the man of Saul,
But there’s none liked old Joshua,
At the battle of Jericho. Refrain

2. Right up to the walls of Jericho,
he marched with spear in hand.
Go, blow that ram’s horn, Joshua cried,
’cause the battle is in my hand. Refrain

3. 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 tumblin’ down. Refrain
