Jericho - The Shout of Victory
by Carman

Album: Platinum Praise Club, Vol. 1

Now Jericho was tightly shut up
Because of the children of Israel
None went out and none came in
And the Lord said unto Joshua

See, I have given into thine hand, Jericho
And the king there of and the mighty men of valor
And ye shall compass the city, all ye men of war
And go 'round about the city once
Thus shalt thou do six days

And seven priests shall bear before
The ark seven trumpets of rams horns
And the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times
And the priests shall blow the trumpets

And it shall come to pass
That when they make a long blast with the ram's horn
And when ye hear the sound of the trumpet
All the people shall shout with a great shout

And the wall of the city shall fall down flat
And the people shall ascend up every man straight before him
For the Lord hath said unto Joshua
"Shout, for I have given you the city

The inhabitants of Jericho were perverted by sin and corrupt
Surrounded by walls so thick, that chariots raced on top
With ladders, catapults and spearheads readied
And blazing in the sun, the armies of Israel
Stood waiting for commands of war to come

For thirty-nine years Joshua was
Trained under Moses righteous hand
And it was Joshua who led nearly
Three million Israelites into the promised land

Now Moses was dead and the real test came could
He simply follow God's word and do something
That to the natural mind would be utterly absurd
Without Moses to ask advice of or an advisory committee
God said, "The walls will fall just tell them
Shout, for I have given you the city"

Now God was putting in operation, a principal of war
Setting at our disposal weaponry that drops demons to the floor
Something with tremendous power that assassinates fear and doubt
It's the high praises of victory, unleashed by a shout

When David played his songs of praise, demons fled from Saul
As Paul and Silas worshiped God, the chains began to fall
It lifts us above the circumstance and lets God's power flow
The shout of victory binds the Devil with chains that won't let go

So with the confidence of warring angels
Israel stood stone ready to obey Joshua
Speak to their mountain and shout
For God was giving them the city

Six days they marched 'round Jericho
And the last day they marched seven
While the Canaanites jeered from their evil wall
Israel's faith reached heaven before any manifestation

With every brick still in place, eyeball-to-eyeball
They looked fear dead in its face
They didn't wait to feel some Earthquake or to see a lightening flash
They didn't need to hear a theatric rumble or a mind blowing crash

They prepared their souls for victory
Now its God's turn to come through
They'd scream their lungs out simply
Because they believed God's word was true

So with the high praises of God in their mouths
Came a massive, there came a volcanic sound
And Israel shouted in victory and they shouted in faith
And the walls came tumbling down

Now this is where we come in
Now how many know the anointing breaks the yolks
Of the bondages of sin? Sin can't survive
When the anointed move in spontaneous praise of man

The Devil's tormented, sickness can't function
When we worship and when we pray
â€~Cause the church of the living God is still alive and well today
"Now how many hear within the sound of my voice
Are not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ?
