Description

Filled with cool, jazz harmonies and irresistible swing rhythms, this spirited arrangement of the well-known African American spiritual is sure to become a favorite with any choir–especially older children’s choirs! Finger snaps and a variety of other entertaining elements join the familiar melody in creating a fresh, animated retelling of this popular Old Testament story. Appropriate in sacred or non-sacred settings, this anthem works equally well in the concert hall or church worship service.

Performance by the Rutgers Children's Choir and Scarlet Singers.
Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho, Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, And the walls came a-tumblin' down! Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho, Jericho, Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, And the walls came a-tumblin' down! 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! (chorus) Right up to the walls of Jericho He marched with spear in hand; "Go blow those ram horns," Joshua cried, For the battle is in God's hands!" (chorus) Then the horns began to blow, And the trumpets began to sound, And Joshua commanded the children to shout ("Come on down!") And the walls came a- tumblin' down! (chorus) And the walls came a-tumblin' down. And the walls came a-tumblin' down! Down!
