Free & Clear

The Voice

Free and Clear was written and performed by Holland based rock band, The Voice. The song is inspired by story of the fall of ancient Jericho found in the Hebrew scripture (Joshua 5:13-6:27). The Israelites, lead by Moses' successor, Joshua, are commanded to take Jericho by marching around the walls of the city once each day for six days. On the seventh, they march around the city seven times. At the completion of the seventh circling, with the blast of horns, a great shout goes up from the Israelites. The power of Jehovah brings the walls of Jericho down and the Israelites pour in, destroying the city. Typically, it is the victors' account with which we are familiar; a great victory for the conquerors, to be sure but what of the vanquished? What of those on the other side of the wall? What of the panic, fear, and sense of abandonment felt as the walls crack and fall away? God, help us - someday we'll be free and clear of this all.
