570. We Shall Overcome

1 We shall overcome, we shall overcome,
we shall overcome some day;
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
we shall overcome some day.

2 We'll go hand in hand,
we'll go hand in hand,
we'll go hand in hand some day;
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
we'll go hand in hand some day.

3 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.

4 Our God will see us through,
our God will see us through,
our God will see us through some day,
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
our God will see us through some day.

5 The truth shall make us free,
the truth shall make us free,
the truth shall make us free some day;
Oh, deep in my heart, I do believe,
the truth shall make us free some day.

6 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.
