We Shall Overcome
Old Gospel Song
1. There's a battle cry being sounded near
By the royal army of the Lord.
Soldiers march to the rhythm of the Lord's commands,
And this promise that is written in His word.
We shall overcome, we shall triumph.
We shall stand in the victory as one.
Calvary's hill's been conquered by the Lord and King
So the victory is already won.
2. There are times so often in the battle's rage
When the fighting will light the darkened sky.
That's the time I focus on the Word of God
And can clearly read the final battle cry.
