This song was written by SCC in loving memory of the 9 African American brethren that 
left this world on June 17, 2015, in the Charleston church shooting, in South Carolina. 

The song, based on Romans 12:21, is originally played with Capo in another key, 
but this version is to be played with the standard tuning, without capo.

[Verse 1]:
D                    Asus4 
Tears are falling in Charleston
G                           
...There're asking why, and no one has the answer
D                           Asus4 
Our hearts are breaking for Charleston
G
...so many lives, in a moment shattered

[Pre-chorus 1]:
Em7              Asus4                    G  
A thief came to steal and to kill and destroy
         Asus4  
But the Story isn't over

[Chorus 1]:
G                  D     
...You will not be overcome,
A                  Bm     
...You will not be overcome by evil
G                   A               D
...But you will overcome evil with good

[Verse 2]:
D                   Asus4 
...They were gathered in Charleston
G
...Cause they believed in a Kingdom coming
D                              Asus4 
and while they are grieving in Charleston 
G
...We won't forget the love that they were showing 

[Pre-chorus 2]:
Em7                       Asus4                    G
...When the thief came to steal and to kill and destroy
           Asus4   
Cause that love will not be silenced 

[Chorus 2]:
G                  D     
...You will not be overcome,
A                  Bm     
...You will not be overcome by evil
G                A              D
...You will overcome evil with good

G                   D     
...Love will not be overcome,
A                   Bm     
...Love will not be overcome by evil
G                 A               D    
...Love will overcome evil with good. . . 

[Inter]:
  G   D   Bm   A   

             G
...Love will overcome

[Bridge]:
D2                   A  
Father of mercies,  God of all comfort...
Em7                         G
Comfort every broken heart, comfort every broken heart

D2                   G  
Father of mercies,  God of all comfort
Em7                             G
Comfort all the broken hearts, comfort all the broken hearts

A                  Bm

...You will overcome evil with good

A                   Bm     
...Love will not be overcome by evil
G                 A               D    
...Love will overcome evil with good. . . 

G                 D     
...Your love will o---vercome
A                   Bm     
...Love will always o--ver-come. . .
G              A                   D
Love will overcome. . . evil with good
