{Intro - N.C.}
C

{Verse 1 - N.C.}
     C
David killed Goliath, though it seemed impossible
Who'd have thought a single stone could make a giant fall
'Cause he was just a kid, and by comparison was small
But held within the hands of God, he was invincible
  
{Verse 2}
      Am     G/B    C               F               C
Well, this I will remember when the battle comes to me
   Am     G/B     C                 Gsus4       G 
To fix my eyes on things above, and not on what I see
F      G       Am               F             C
In the deepest struggle, in the face of great defeat
Dm          C/E             Gsus4    C    
My unfair advantage is that Jesus stands with me

{Chorus}
    F      G    Am         F      G       Am    
And all it ever takes is a little seed of faith
F    G        Am               Gsus4   G
Big enough to bring down every giant
        F       G    Am           F        G       Am    
I don't have to be afraid, in the hands of God I'm brave
      F        G     Am               Gsus4   G
He is training me to bring down every giant
    F       Gsus4        Am
So, I will overcome my Goliath
     F       Gsus4   C
1.2. I will overcome my Goliath

{Verse 3}
Am      G/B        C                F                C
Courage comes from knowing that I'm walking with the Lord
   Am     G/B     C                Gsus4       G 
No matter what I face, I know that He has gone before
F         G      Am              F           C
This will be the battle cry that hell cannot ignore
Dm           C/E             Gsus4   C    
Jesus is the Risen One, He's over - come it all

[Repeat Chorus]

   Rise up, for the battle is the Lord's
Am                  F             C
   Rise up, for the battle is the Lord's

I will overcome my Goliath

I will overcome my Goliath

About this song

Inspired by the story of David and Goliath, this song reminds us that God towers over every challenge we will ever face, and it is our faith combined with what is in our hands that defeats darkness and fear. Just as David was seemingly overpowered and overshadowed by the size of his enemy, it was his faith in the God that overshadows everything that won the battle.
