Eyes On The Prize

Music

Lyrics

ad no money for to go their bail
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on
Paul and Silas thought they was lost
Dungeon shook and the chains come off
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on
Freedom’s name is mighty sweet
And soon we’re gonna meet
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on
I got my hand on the gospel plow
Won’t take nothing for my journey now
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on

Hold on, hold on,
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on

Took Paul and Silas, put 'em in the j ail,
Had no one to go their bail.
Keep your hands on that plow, hold on.

Paul and Silas, they begin to shout,
Jail doors opened and they walked out.
Keep your hands on the plow, hold on.

Peter was so nice and neat,
Wouldn't let Jesus wash his feet.
Keep your hands on that plow, hold on.

Jesus said, "If I wash them not,
You'll have no father in this lot."
Keep your hands on that plow, hold on.

Peter got anxious and he said,
Wash my feet my hands and head."
Keep your hands on that plow, hold on.

Only chain that a man can stand
Is that chain of hand in hand
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on
I’m gonna board that big greyhound
Carry THE LOVE from town to town
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on

Hold on, hold on,
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on

The only thing I did was wrong
Was stayin' in the wilderness too long
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on
Only thing we did was right
Was the day we started to fight!
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on

Hold on, hold on,
Keep your eyes on the prize, Hold on

Ain’t been to heaven but I been told,
Street’s up there are paved with gold…

Alternative lyrics

Mary wore three links of chain,
Every link was Jesus name,
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on,
Oh, Lord, Oh, Lord,
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on.

Mary, Mark and Luke and John,
All them prophets so good and gone,
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on,
Oh, Lord, Oh, Lord,
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on.

Well I never been to heaven, but I've been told,
Streets up there are lined with gold,
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on,
Oh, Lord, Oh, Lord,
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on.
Oh, Lord, Oh, Lord,
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on.

Oh, Lord, Oh, Lord,
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on.
