501. 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 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.

3 We shall all be free,
We shall all be free,
We shall all be free some day;
Oh, deep in my heart I do believe,
We shall all be free some day.

4 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.

5 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.
