Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Our June fund drive (one of two such drives we offer each year) ends soon (on June 30), and we have almost reached our goal. If you haven't given yet, would you consider doing so today? Keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, you can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Joshua Fought the Battle of Jericho

Full Text

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)
