“We Shall Overcome”

 

We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome
some day.

Chorus
Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome
some day.

The truth will make us free
The truth will make us free
The truth will make us free
some day.

Chorus

We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand
We'll walk hand in hand
some day.

Chorus

We are not afraid
We are not afraid
We are not afraid
today.

Chorus

The truth will make us free
The truth will make us free
The truth will make us free
some day.

Chorus

We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome
some day.

Chorus

— derived from Rev. Charles Tindley, 1900
