1 In Canaan’s land by Jordan’s stream,
Stood once an ancient town;
When Israel’s God its walls defied,
By faith the walls fell down.

The walls are falling down,
The walls are falling down;
March round and round, blow long and loud,
The walls are falling down.

2 The walls of sin before us stand,
We need not heed their frown,
Our God has made his promise sure,
By faith the walls fall down. [Refrain]

3 The armies of the Lord march forth,
Their glorious King to crown,
The cities of their foes oppose,
By faith their walls fall down. [Refrain]

4 All hail, ye servants of the Lord,
Give heed, march up and down,
Blow ye the trumpet long and loud,
The walls are falling down. [Refrain]
