Mandisa, “Overcomer”

Contemporary Christian superstar Mandisa is back! Overcomer, the carrier single of her new album coming out late August, has been released to Christian radio, and Overcomer is exploding in a big way! Mandisa’s Overcomer earns Greatest Gainer honors this week on Billboard’s Christian Songs chart, and is also the most increased and most added song on Christian AC according to Christian radio. With Overcomer‘s lyrics being extremely encouraging, and a catchy chorus, I think we can all safely assume Mandisa’s Overcomer will be her third number one hit on Billboard’s Christian Songs chart. GO MANDISA!

The incredible video for Overcomer was recently released, and features cancer survivor and television host Robin Roberts; fellow cancer survivor and Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton; US congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was shot in the head in 2011 but has since made a remarkable recovery; and Biggest Loser runner-up Hannah Curlee. Check out the video below!

Read Mandisa’s Overcomer lyrics after the jump.


Staring at a stop sign
Watching people drive by
T Mac on the radio
Got so much on your mind
Nothing’s really going right
Looking for a ray of hope

Whatever it is you may be going through
I know He’s not gonna let it get the best of you

You’re an overcomer
Stay in the fight ‘til the final round
You’re not going under
‘Cause God is holding you right now
You might be down for a moment
Feeling like it’s hopeless
That’s when He reminds You
That you’re an overcomer
You’re an overcomer

Everybody’s been down
Hit the bottom, hit the ground
Oh, you’re not alone
Just take a breath, don’t forget
Hang on to His promises
He wants You to know

The same Man, the Great I am
The one who overcame death
Is living inside of You
So just hold tight, fix your eyes
On the one who holds your life
There’s nothing He can’t do
He’s telling You
