I Will Overcome


I will overcome,
The trials and tribulations that life throws my way,
Even when the ground is shaky and winds make me sway,
I shall stand firm through night and day.

I will overcome,
The temptations that shall come and try my endurance,
The inflictions that will happen to test my perseverance,
I shall hold on and emerge victorious.

I will overcome,
The sadness and disappointment that may come and go,
The memories that may haunt with a firm no,
I shall press on, with a resolute resolve I pledge so.

When times are good and life is kind, I will celebrate,
When life is hard and times are bad I will tolerate,
For every tribulation will my soul invigorate,
And at the end of it all I know that I will overcome.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
