Break Your Pitchers!

Full Text

1 Do you know the story of Gideon's band;
In the name of the Lord how they dared to stand?
How they drove God's enemies out of the land,
With their broken pitchers and their trumpets?

Chorus:
Then break your pitchers!
Blow your trumpets!
Dare for God to stand!
Break your pitchers!
Blow your trumpets!
Be a Gideon's band!

2 Far down in the valley the enemy lay,
Like the sands of the sea without number, they say,-
But the brave three hundred soon drove them away
With their broken pitchers and their trumpets! [Chorus]

3 Can't you hear God calling for Gideon's band?
Who shall dare in the name of the Lord to stand?
Who shall face the foe with a courage grand,
With their broken pitchers and their trumpets? [Chorus]
