445. Great Day!

Refrain:
Great day! Great day, the righteous marching,
Great day!
God's going to build up Zion's walls.

1 The chariot rode on the mountaintop,
God's going to build up Zion's walls.
My God spoke and the chariot did stop.
God's going to build up Zion's walls. Oh, (Refrain)

2 This is the day of Jubilee,
God's going to build up Zion's walls.
God shall set the people free.
God's going to build up Zion's walls. Oh, (Refrain)
