The walls around my Jericho
Appear so thick, so tall,
And yet I know to You, oh Lord,
They are not large at all.
The problems that discourage me
Don't even make You pause,
For nothing is too difficult,
It can't defeat Your cause.
I'm in Your mighty army
And follow where You lead,
And when I follow Your commands
I know we will succeed.
The obstacles that look so tough
With ease You overcome,
It's not my wisdom or my strength
Or what I must become.
I simply follow in Your steps
The path that You prepare,
And when I see the walls fall down
I simply stand and stare.
It's all Your work not mine, Lord,
You always go before,
For You equip me for the task
And open every door.
The walls should not discourage me
For always You succeed,
And anywhere You lead me, Lord,
Your Spirit will precede.
