Mahalia Jackson – We Shall Overcome lyrics

We shall overcome, yeah Lord I know
We shall overcome, one sweet day

We shall overcome one day
We shall overcome one day
We shall overcome the Lord one day, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
If in our heart we do believe
Lord, we shall overcome Lord someday, mmm

We shall all have peace one day
We shall all have peace one day
We shall all have peace Lord Lord one day
Yeah, yeah, yeah, if in our heart Lord we, we do believe
Oh, we should all have peace Lord one day (Lord some day), mmm

We shall all be free one day, Lord (we shall all be free one day)
We shall all be free one day, Lord (we shall all be free one day)
We shall all be free Lord, one day
Lord God, if in our heart yeah, oh, do believe, Lord
We shall be free Lord one day (we shall overcome)
