"VICTORY PRAISE CHANT"

Chorus 1
The Lord's gonna work a miracle
He's gonna do the impossible
He's gonna do just what we can't
As we all join in the victory, victory praise chant,
Victory praise chant. Oh, yeah!

Verse 1
In days of old in the Holy Land
The Lord God showed His mighty hand
When the hordes from Mt. Seir with the Ammonites
Were joined by the hosts of the Moabites
Countless armed, faithless Systemites
Bent on attacking God's people, the Israelites.

Verse 2 [lines 1-4 rapped]
Vastly outnumbered, unprepared & afraid
In Jerusalem, good King Jehosophat prayed
We trust you to save us in this hour of need
From these godless invaders, with their violence & greed

We don't know what to do, no, we don't have a clue,
But, God of our Fathers, our eyes are on You!

'Cause he knew…..

Chorus 2
The Lord's gonna work another miracle
He's gonna do the impossible
Yes, He's gonna do just what we can't
As we all join in the victory, victory praise chant
Victory praise chant.

Break 1
And Jehosophat said,
"Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising!
Just keep on praising, just keep praising, just keep on praising!"

Verse 3
Then the answer came then, a prophet in the crowd
Gave the answer from Heaven, boldly & loud, said,
"Don't be dismayed by this marauding horde,
Stand still & see the salvation of the Lord! 'Cause …

Chorus 3
He's gonna work a miracle, yeah,
He's gonna do the impossible
He's gonna do just what we can't
As we all join in the victory, victory praise chant
Victory praise chant

Break 2
Praising God, the minstrels & the singers go on before,
When the victory's won, we'll praise Him some more.
Praising God, the minstrels & the singers go on before,
When the victory's won, we'll praise Him some more.

Verse 4
At morning light the defenders marched
Led by the music of trumpets & harps
Praising for the triumph o'er the enemy in advance
For to attack God's people, they never got that chance,
Destroyed by one another, slain with the sword,
All that was left for Jeho & his men
Was to gather the spoils & bless the good Lord!

Break 3
And all the people said,
"Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising!
Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising!
Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising!
Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising!"

Chorus 4
The Lord's gonna work a miracle
He's gonna do the impossible
He's gonna do just what we can't
As we all join in the victory, victory praise chant [Just keep on praising! Praise the Lord!]
Victory praise chant [Just keep on praising! I say praise Him!]
Victory praise chant

Ending
Praising God, the minstrels & the singers go When the victory's won, we'll praise Him some more
Victory praise chant!
Praising God, the minstrels & the singers go When the victory's won, we'll praise Him some more
Victory praise chant!

Repeat, and fade
