Joshua chapter six
One through twenty-five

Verse 1:
Jericho was on lock down
No one could come in or out
Unto Joshua the words came out the Lords mouth
I have given into your hand
Jericho
The king and the mighty men who dwell in the land
You must go
With your men of war
March around the city once
Do it this way for six days
Seven priest should carry seven ram horns
Before the ark
On the seventh day you should march
Around the city seven times
The priest blow their horns
It shall come to pass
That when they make that long blast
Of the rams horn
And hear the trumpets sound on
Atlast
All the people must shout out a great war cry
The walls of the city shall fall down before your eyes
You must go in and conquer
Take all their lives
Leave no man woman or child alive

Hook:
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
Fall like the walls of Jericho
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
Fall like the walls of Jericho
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
If you live it’s a miracle
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
Fall like the walls of Jericho

Verse 2:
Joshua commanded the people
You should neither shout
Nor let your voice be heard or a word out your mouth
Until the day I say to you shout
Then you must shout
No doubt!
So they march around the city once carrying the ark
Seven priest seven ram horns as they walk
Men equipped for war in the front no one talks
Just the sound of blowing trumpets
As the rear guard
Follows the ark of the covenant
That was the way they did it for six days
Day seven
They up at the crack of dawn early morn
This day they march seven times marchin on
The priest blew the horn seven times battles on
Joshua shouts
Jehovah gives you the city
Clean’em out
Destroy’em all except the prostitute and those in her house
She hid the messengers who we sent out

Hook:
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
Fall like the walls of Jericho
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
Fall like the walls of Jericho
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
If you live it’s a miracle
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
Fall like the walls of Jericho

Verse 3:
Told Israel keep away from the unclean accursed things
Don’t bring it back to the camp
The hurt that it brings
But all the silver gold
Articles of copper and iron are something holy
Treasures to the One and Only
And it came about
When they heard the sound of the horns
They began to shout
A war cry loud
The walls fall down
They capture the city
Destroy with the sword
Everything living
Young to the old
Men to the women
Bull sheep and ass the killing the blood the spilling
The only ones who survived
Is Rahab and her family ties
Safely brought them out
To the camp out side
Of Israel
Then they burned the city down
And everything in it
Jericho’s over
Kept the silver gold copper and iron
For the treasures of Jehovah

Hook:
Fall like the walls of Jericho
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
Fall like the walls of Jericho
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
If you live it’s a miracle
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
Fall like the walls of Jericho
Jericho… Jericho… Jericho… Jericho…
