Great Day!

Representative Text

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

2 This is the day of jubilee,
God's going to build up Zion's walls.
The Lord has set his people free,
God's going to build up Zion's walls. [Refrain]
