5. Great Day

Refrain:
Great day! Great day, the righteous marching.
Great day. God’s going to build up Zion’s walls.

1 Chariot rode on the mountaintop,
God’s going to build up Zion’s walls!
My God spoke and the chariot did stop,
God’s going to build up Zion’s walls! [Refrain]

2 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! [Refrain]

3 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! [Refrain]

4 Going to take my breast plate, sword, and shield,
God’s going to build up Zion’s walls!
And march out boldly in the field,
God’s going to build up Zion’s walls! [Refrain]
