African-American Spiritual

I've got peace like a river,

I've got peace like a river,

I've got peace like a river in my soul.

I've got pain like an arrow,

I've got pain like an arrow,

I've got pain like an arrow in my soul.

I've got strength like a mountain,

I've got strength like a mountain,

I've got strength like a mountain in my soul.

I've got joy like a fountain,

I've got joy like a fountain,

I've got joy like a fountain in my soul.

I've got determination,
I've got determination,
I've got determination in my soul.
