Looking for a song title & lyrics to a song my husband sang when he was very young.  He said that it started out (he thinks)

Oh the Lord told Joshua go to Jericho and march 7 times around...

Thanks!

The chorus has:

and the walls came tumbling down (tumbling down)

You can go to youtube and listen to Mahalia Jackson sing this song

The name is Joshua fit de battle of Jericho

It is a Negro Spiritual!

Thanks! That is a good song but that is not the one he is thinking of

It was more a southern gospel...

Chrous:  Joshua fought the battle of Jericho, Jericho,Jericho, Joshusa fought the battle of Jericho and the walls came tumbling down.   

Soloist:  You may talk about your man of Gideon, you may talk about your man of Saul, theres none like good old Joshua at the battle of Jericho.

Chrous repeats same as first time.

Soloist:  Well up to the walls of Jericho, he marched with a spear in hand, go blow those ram horns Joshua cried cause the battle in my hands.  Let me tell you now;

Chrous repeats same as first time.

If my memory serves correctly, my mother sang this when I was growing up at church, and usually the chorus had a couple of people singing it like a repeat where I have marked ( ). Not sure what the title is, but here it goes.

Verse 1) The Lord told Joshua to go to Jericho and to march seven times around.  He followed safely and obeyed the Lord's command and the walls came tumbling down.

Chorus) And the walls(and the walls)(and the walls) came tumbling down
Joshua (Joshua)(Joshua) marched seven times around
And the walls(and the walls)(and the walls) came tumbling down
And the walls came tumbling down.

Verse 2)
If you believe in the power of the cross and you hope to wear a crown, just follow safely and obey the Lord's command walls of doubt will tumble down.

And the walls came tumbling down.

The Kingsmen sang this song back in the late 70's or early 80's.  You might try their office to see if they have any old records.

I have the album & MP3 of the song "Joshua" that the McDonalds (gospel group) sang in the early 70s that follows the general lyrics above:

Chorus:

Then the walls (then the walls x 3) came tumbling down
(Joshua) Joshua marched seven times around
Then the walls (then the walls x 3)
And the walls came tumbling down

No sheet music though.

Now the Lord told Joshua to go to Jericho
And to march seven times around.
He followed safely and obeyed the Lord's command
And the walls came tumbling down.

And then the walls.... (walls mighty walls)
Came tumbling down and Joshua
marched seven times around.
then the walls.... (walls mighty walls)
Came tumbling down
And the walls came tubling down.

If you will trust in the power of his might
And you hope to wear a crown.
Just follow safely and obeyed the Lord's command
And the walls will come tumbling down.

JOSHUA (lyrics)

Now the Lord told Joshua to go to Jericho
And to march seven times around.
He followed safely and obeyed the Lord's command
And the walls came tumbling down.

And then the walls.... (walls mighty walls)
Came tumbling down and Joshua
marched seven times around.
then the walls.... (walls mighty walls)
Came tumbling down
And the walls came tubling down.

If you will trust in the power of his might
And you hope to wear a crown.
Just follow safely and obeyed the Lord's command
And the walls will come tumbling down.

This is for 'Straitpaisley' ,'Christiangurl18','krobe03','AngelaRittenHouse',and
'Annetomsik '  If you'll will go to   Song of the Day"The Walls Came TumblingDown" you can find the exact words. I grew up all my life in church and around singing. I know the longing that it brings for even a small remembrance   of  a sermon,singin' ,baptism,homecomin' ,dinner on the ground,or? even a funeral. Well,you'll be blessed.

I found two versions. Are you looking for either of these?

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace
Author: Vivian Kretz

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace
Whose mind is stayed on Thee
When the shadows come and darkness falls
He giveth inward peace
O He is the only perfect resting place
He giveth perfect peace
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace
Whose mind is stayed on Thee.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><


Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace
Author: Unknown

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace,
Whose mind is stayed on Thee.

Marvel not that I say unto you,
Marvel not that I say unto you,
Marvel not that I say unto you,
Ye must be born again.

Though your sins as scarlet me,
Though your sins as scarlet me
Though your sins as scarlet me
They shall be white as snow.

If the Son shall make you free,
If the Son shall make you free,
If the Son shall make you free,
You shall be free indeed.

They that wait upon the Lord,
They that wait upon the Lord,
They that wait upon the Lord,
They shall renew their strength.

Whom shall I send and who will go?
Whom shall I send and who will go?
Whom shall I send and who will go?
Here I am, Lord, send me.

Oh mighty walls (mighty walls of Jericho)
You've got to come tumbling down
Oh mighty walls (mighty walls of Jericho)
Don't you hear that rumbling sound?
When God's children march together
Old satan will surely frown
Oh mighty walls of Jericho
You got to come tumbling down!
