Letra:

Joshua fit the battle of Jericho,
Jericho,  Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho and the walls come tumbling down

1. God knows that Joshua fit the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho
Joshua fit the battle of Jericho and the walls come tumbling down

Good morning sister Mary, good morning brother John
Well I wanna stop and talk with you, wanna tell you how I come along
I know you've heard about Joshua, he was the son of Nun
He never stopped his work until, until the work was done

1. (Repete)


You may talk about your men of Gideon, you may brag about your men of Saul
There's none like good old Joshua at the battle of Jericho
Up to the walls of Jericho he marched with spear in hand
Go blow them ram horns, Joshua cried, 'cause the battle is in my hands

1. (Repete)

You may talk about your men of Gideon, you may brag about your men of Saul
There's none like good old Joshua at the battle of Jericho
They tell me, great God that Joshua’s spear was well nigh twelve feet long
And upon his hip was a double edged sword and his mouth was a gospel horn

Yet bold and brave he stood, salvation in his harms
Go blow them ram horns Joshua cried 'cause the devil can't do you no harm

1. (Repete)


Up to the walls of Jericho he marched with spear in hand
Go blow them ram horns, Joshua cried, 'cause the battle is in my hands
Then the lamb ram sheep horns began to blow, the trumpets began to sound
Old Joshua shouted glory and the walls came tumblin' down

1. (Repete)
Down, down, down, down, down
Tumblin' down
