about

The Israelites faced a great obstacle on the way to the promised land. In a way, all believers face hurdles on the way to the kingdom (Hebrews 11:30)

lyrics

Verse 1

Oh Joshua,
Look at the city of might
For its walls
Reach to the sky
And its bricks
Are thick for miles
Son of Nun,
The Lord
Will help to see you through

This Jericho
stands before the people of God
But you're led
By the Captain
of the armies
of Mighty God
Trust in Him
Be strong
And see the walls fall down

Bridge

Let not your heart grow faint
He will lead you to His land
Stretch out your hands to Him
He will quench your thirsty soul

Chorus

March 'round the city
Shout to the heavens
Fall down Jericho
You're going to fall down Jericho

Verse 2

Now Israel
The land of promise is yours
Not because
Of your own might
Or the strength
Within your hearts
But the pow'r
Of God
(To) make walls come tumbling down

Break

Bring it down
Bring it down
Bring it down
(repeat)

Jericho was a fortified city, and stood as an obstacle in Israel's way to the promised land. In like manner, every believer has a fortified city of sin in their hearts, that stands in the way of their sanctification. But yet neither Jericho nor sin are obstacles to the power of God

God had promised Joshua that the mighty city would be rent asunder by his army. So too does the Lord promise to demolish the dwellings of sin in our lives, for He says that "those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires"

So many times, and with so many of the battles one may face, the odds will seem impossible. But as it was with Israel, so shall it be with every believer, that those things that are impossible for man, are possible with God.

The Lord was with Josua - so shall He be with you.

Verse 3

Believing one,
Faced with a fortress of sin
Do its walls
Reach to the sky?
Are its bricks
So thick for miles?
Child of God
The Lord
Will help to see you through

This dark city
Stands in the way of your path
If you hold
To His promise
And proceed
By way of faith
Rest assured
The Lamb
Will bring you victory

Bridge

Let not your heart grow faint
He will lead you to His land
Stretch out your hands to Him
He will quench your thirsty soul

Chorus

March 'round the city
Shout to the heavens
Fall down Jericho
You're going to fall down Jericho

Bridge

Deliver me from my sin
Leading me to your refuge
Walking through the midst of strife
Deliver me by your hand

Chorus

March 'round the city
Shout to the heavens
Fall down Jericho
You're going to fall down Jericho
