"GREAT DAY
"


from « American Negro Songs »
by J. W. Work, 1940

 

Great day !

Great day, the righteous marching

Great day

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls

Chariot rode on the mountain top

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls

My God spoke and the chariot stop

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls

This is the day of jubilee

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls

The Lord has set His people free

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls

We want no cowards in our band

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls

We call for valiant hearted men

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls

Going to take my breast-plate, sword and shield

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls

And march boldly in the field

God’s going to build up Zion’s walls
