544. I'll Overcome Someday

1 This world is one great battlefield,
With forces all arrayed;
If in my heart I do not yield
I’ll overcome some day.
I’ll overcome some day,
I’ll overcome some day;
If in my heart I do not yield
I’ll overcome some day.

2 Both seen and unseen powers join
To drive my soul astray,
But with God's Word a sword of mine,
I’ll overcome some day.
I’ll overcome some day,
I’ll overcome some day;
But with God's Word a sword of mine,
I’ll overcome some day.

3 A thousand snares are set for me,
And mountains in my way;
If Jesus will my leader be,
I’ll overcome some day.
I’ll overcome some day,
I’ll overcome some day;
If Jesus will my leader be,
I’ll overcome some day.

4 I fail so often when I try
My Savior to obey;
It pains my heart and then I cry,
Lord, make me strong some day.
Lord, make me strong some day,
Lord, make me strong some day;
It pains my heart and then I cry,
Lord, make me strong some day.

5 My mind is not to do the wrong,
But walk the narrow way;
I’m praying as I journey on,
To overcome some day.
To overcome some day,
To overcome some day;
I’m praying as I journey on,
To overcome some day.

6 Tho' many a time no signs appear,
Of answer when I pray;
My Jesus says I need not fear,
He’ll make it plain some day.
I’ll be like Him some day,
I’ll be like Him some day;
My Jesus says I need not fear,
I’ll be like Him some day.
