Representative Text

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

2 We’ll walk hand in hand,
we’ll walk hand in hand,
we’ll walk hand in hand someday;
Oh, deep in my heart I do believe,
we shall overcome someday.

3 We shall all be free,
we shall all be free,
we shall all be free someday;
Oh, deep in my heart I do believe,
we shall overcome someday.

4 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.

5 We shall live in peace,
we shall live in peace,
we shall live in peace someday;
Oh, deep in my heart I do believe,
we shall overcome someday.
