Have I not commanded you? Be strong and of good courage; do not be afraid, nor be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9


You are the path that leads me home

through many sorrows and many tears

even after ten thousand years

i will rejoice in You alone


i am heading to the promised land

that is where i will make my stand

i will march around those walls

and with a shout they will fall


in times of trouble

when meek and humble

i seek Your counsel

so i do not stumble


after all my many blunders

i am now so filled with wonder

because now i can finally see

who i am called to be


there is my sweet promised land

that is where i make my stand

because i will not back down

i will receive a crown


i will walk 7 times around

then my horns will blow with sound

the walls that stand will all fall down

my enemies will fall. i will gain my crown

for my God reigns

at the mention of Your name

i see my enemies writhe in pain

age to age the outcome remains the same

always the same


through the mire and fire

through the flood of blood

braced for the coming horde

i will stand for You oh Lord


i am in my promised land

now where i have made my stand

i am delivered and i am free

i have a heavenly destiny

hallelujah to God almighty


hallelujah. hallelujah

to God almighty

hallelujah to God almighty
