"We Shall Overcome"

We shall overcome, We shall overcome, We shall overcome someday.

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

We’ll walk hand in hand, We’ll walk hand in hand,

We’l walk hand in hand someday.

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

We shall all be free, We shall all be free, We shall all be free someday.

O deep in my heart, I do believe, We shall overcome someday.

We are not afraid, We are not afraid, We are not afraid someday,

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

We are not alone, We are not alone, We are not alone someday.

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

 

The whole wide world around, The whole wide world around,

The whole wide world around someday.

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

We shall overcome, We shall overcome, We shall overcome someday.

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

"Lift Every Voice & Sing"

Verse I:

Lift ev’ry voice and sing, till earth and heaven ring

Ring with the harmonies of liberty;

Let our rejoicing rise, high as the list’ning skies,

Let it resound loud as the rolling sea.

Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us,

Sing a song full of the hopes that the present has brought us;

Facing the rising sun of our new day begun,

Let us march on till victory is won.

Verse 2:

Stony the road we trod, bitter the chast’ning rod,

Felt in the days when hope unborn had died;

Yet with a steady beat, have not our weary feet,

Come to the place for which our fathers sighed?

We have come over a way that with tears has been watered,

We have come, treading our path thro’ the blood of the

slaughtered,

Out from the gloomy past, till now we stand at last

Where the white gleam of our bright star is cast.

Verse 3:

God of our weary years, God of our silent tears,

Thou who hast brought us thus far on the way;

Thou who hast by Thy might, led us into the light,

Keep us forever in the path, we pray.

Lest our feet stray from the places, our God, where we met Thee,

Lest our hearts, drunk with the wine of the world, we forget Thee;

Shadowed beneath Thy hand,  May we forever stand,

True to our God, true to our native land.
