To say that someone is an “overcomer” is to say that they’re more powerful than the obstacle they’re coming in contact with. When we say, “You’re the God who overcomes,” we’re proclaiming our belief that there’s nothing in heaven or on earth that can stop His intentions from becoming a reality. In our lives, each day can seem to bring a new barrier: a failing relationship, a troubling diagnosis, chronic illness, broken marriage, falling to temptation. But - none of these things are deal-breakers for our God. He says, “Give me your worst-case scenario; Death. I’ve already overcome it. And I can overcome your brokenness too.” We sing “Overcomes” as a declaration of His character, and as a reminder to our souls of who saves us.

Lyrics

V1
When I’m overwhelmed and shadowed with doubt
You make a way
In my brokenness where peace can’t be found
You make a way

CHORUS
You lift my head up
You heal my soul
I’m made new because of You
Because of what You’ve done
You’re the God who overcomes

V2
Painting grace upon my canvas of fears
You make a way
Draw me closer so you’re all that I hear
You make a way

BRIDGE
All my worries, all my doubts
I shake ‘em off and they’re falling down
All my fears, all my shame
I lay 'em down in Jesus’ name

You're the God who overcomes
You're the God who overcomes
