512. We Shall Overcome

1 We shall overcome, we shall overcome,
we shall overcome someday!

Oh, deep in my heart I do believe
we shall overcome someday!

2 The Lord will see us through.

3 We'll walk hand in hand.

4 We are not afraid (today).

5 The truth will make us free.

7 We shall live in peace.
