🎢 We Shall Overcome 🎢 (1. Lyrics, introduction, translation)

 

We shall overcome
We shall overcome
We shall overcome, some day

Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day

We’ll walk hand in hand
We’ll walk hand in hand
We’ll walk hand in hand, some day

Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day

We shall live in peace
We shall live in peace
We shall live in peace, some day

Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day

We are not afraid
We are not afraid
We are not afraid, today

Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day

The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around
The whole wide world around some day

Oh, deep in my heart
I do believe
We shall overcome, some day

“We Shall Overcome” is a gospel song which became a protest song and an anthem of the Civil Rights Movement. Anyway, it is not defiant, but it is a promise: “We shall overcome someday. Deep in my heart, I do believe.”
(Some of the verses vary in different versions)

NOI TRIONFEREMO

Noi trionferemo,
noi trionferemo,
noi trionferemo un giorno.

Oh, nel profondo del mio cuore
io credo proprio
che trionferemo un giorno.

Noi cammineremo mano nella mano,
noi cammineremo mano nella mano,
noi cammineremo mano nella mano un giorno.

Oh, nel profondo del mio cuore
io credo proprio
che trionferemo un giorno.

Noi vivremo in pace,
noi vivremo in pace,
noi vivremo in pace un giorno.

Oh, nel profondo del mio cuore
io credo proprio
che trionferemo un giorno.

Non abbiamo paura
Non abbiamo paura
Non abbiamo paura, oggi

Oh, nel profondo del mio cuore
io credo proprio
che trionferemo un giorno.

In tutto il mondo
In tutto il mondo
In tutto il mondo, un giorno.

Oh, nel profondo del mio cuore
io credo proprio
che trionferemo un giorno.

  1. A beautiful and very very meaningful song! I love the part of “we are not afraid” because it shows that no matter what the oppressor does, it has not a meaning because we are not afraid. Beautiful post, Luisa, I greatly admire your blog! Thank you! grazie mille per tutto!
