106. Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho

Refrain:
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho,
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho,
and the walls came tumbling down.

1 You may talk about the men of Gideon,
you may talk about the men of Saul,
there's none like good old Joshua,
at the battle of Jericho. (Refrain)

2 Up to the walls of Jericho
he marched with sword in hand,
"Go blow those ram's horns," Joshua cried,
"for the battle is in God's hands." (Refrain)

3 Then the horns began to bellow,
the trumpets began to sound,
and Joshua commanded the children to shout,
and the walls came tumbling down. (Refrain)
