WE SHALL OVERCOME

 We shall overcome,
 We shall overcome,
 We shall overcome some day;
 Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
 We shall overcome some day.
 
 The Lord will see us through,
 The Lord will see us through,
 The Lord will see us through some day;
 Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
 The Lord will see us through some day.
 
 We'll walk hand in hand,
 We'll walk hand in hand,
 We'll walk hand in hand some day;
 Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
 We'll walk hand in hand some day.
 
 We are not afraid,
 We are not afraid,
 We are not afraid, today;
 Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
 We are not afraid today.
 
 The truth shall make us free,
 The truth shall make us free,
 The truth shall make us free someday;
 Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
 The truth shall make us free some day.
 
 We shall live in peace,
 We shall live in peace,
 We shall live in peace some day;
 Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
 We shall live in peace some day.
