​Jehoshaphat

This song is by Don Fransisco.

Now, Jehoshaphat's king in Jerusalem
A long long time ago
When the children o' Judah
All worshipped the Lord,
From the high on down to the low

And Judah was a wealthy kingdom
Everybody's children were fed
'Cause Jehoshaphat studied the word of the Lord
And did everything He said

But out of the east came an army one day
After Jehoshaphat's gold
They were marchin' right straight to Jerusalem
And Jehoshaphat soon was told

So he called all the people together
And everybody fasted and prayed
The Lord God answered the people and said
There's no need--for you to be afraid

Cause the battle is Mine tomorrow
It's not yours and it's not the king's
And all you gotta do is just stand and watch
To see the Salvation I bring

Just believe that what I've told ya
Is exactly what I'm gonna do
And go out tomorrow against them now
Cause the Lord's gonna fight for you
Great jumpin' Jehoshaphat!

Well, the army rose early next mornin'
They marched on out with the king
Jehoshaphat chose some singers
And told those singers to sing

And they praised the beauty of holiness
Instead of shoutin' out a battle cry
And all the way down to the enemy's camp
They sang to the Lord on high
And they were singin'...

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord our God
His mercy, will never end

Well, the Lord God set up an ambush
Got the enemy all turned around
Got into killin' each other ya know
Till they all lay dead on the ground

And the riches and the jewels they left behind
Took 'em three whole days to haul
The children o' Judah all praised the Lord
Cause He saved them one and all
They were singin'...

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord our God
His mercy, will never end

If the parallel ain't real obvious now
I'll spell it right out for you
When you see trouble comin' to rip you off
Here's all that you need to do

Just pray to your Heavenly Father
And believe that His word is true
And step out and shout the Salvation of God
Cause He'll win that battle for you

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord our God
His mercy, will never end

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord our God
His mercy, will never end

Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever and ever
Praise ye the Lord
His mercy endures forever----
