Audio: Victory Praise Chant

The Lord’s gonna work a miracle.
He’s gonna do the impossible.
He’s gonna do just what we can’t,
As we all join in the victory, victory praise chant.
Victory praise chant. Oh, yeah!

In days of old in the Holy Land,
The Lord God showed His mighty hand,
When the hordes from Mt. Seir with the Ammonites
Were joined by the hosts of the Moabites;
Countless armed, faithless “selfish-ites”
Bent on attacking God’s people, the Israelites.

Vastly outnumbered, unprepared, and afraid
In Jerusalem good King Jehoshaphat prayed,
“We trust You to save us in this hour of need
From these godless invaders, with their violence and greed.

We don’t know what to do. No, we don’t have a clue!
But, God of our fathers, our eyes are on You.”

’Cause he knew,

The Lord’s gonna work another miracle.
He’s gonna do the impossible.
Yes, He’s gonna do just what we can’t,
As we all join in the victory, victory praise chant.
Victory praise chant.

And Jehoshaphat said,
“Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising.
“Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising.”

Then the answer came, a prophet in the crowd
Gave the answer from heaven, boldly and loud; said,
“Don’t be dismayed by this marauding horde;
Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord!” 

’Cause …

He’s gonna work a miracle, yeah,
He’s gonna do the impossible.
He’s gonna do just what we can’t,
As we all join in the victory, victory praise chant.

(Just keep on praising, just keep on praising.)
Victory praise chant.

(Just keep on praising, just keep on praising.)

Praising God, the minstrels and the singers go on before.
When the victory’s won, we’re gonna praise Him some more.
Praising God the minstrels and the singers go on before.
When the victory’s won, we’re gonna praise Him some more.

At morning light the defenders marched,
Led by the music of trumpets and harps.
Praising for the triumph over the enemy in advance,
For to attack God’s people, they never got their chance.
Destroyed by one another, slain with the sword,
All that was left for Jeho and his men
Was to gather the spoils and bless the Lord.

And all the people said,
“Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising.
“Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising.
“Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising.
“Just keep on praising, just keep on praising, just keep on praising.”


The Lord’s gonna work a miracle.
He’s gonna do the impossible.
He’s gonna do just what we can’t,
As we all join in the victory, victory praise chant,

(Just keep on praising! Praise the Lord!)
Victory praise chant.

(Just keep on praising! I say praise Him!)

Victory praise chant.

Praising God, the minstrels and the singers go on before,
When the victory’s won, we’re gonna praise Him some more.
Victory praise chant!
Praising God, the minstrels and the singers go on before,
When the victory’s won, we’re gonna praise Him some more.
Victory praise chant!

Just keep on praising.
Just keep on praising.
Just keep on praising.
