Keep Your Eyes on the Prize

The SNCC Freedom Singers
Lingua: Inglese



Paul and Silas, bound in jail,
Had no money for to go their bail
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

[Rit.] Hold on, hold on
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

Paul and Silas began to shout,
The jail door opened and they walked out
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

Freedom’s name is mighty sweet,
Soon one day we’re gonna meet
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

Got my hand on the Gospel plow,
I wouldn’t take nothing for my journey now
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

The only chain that a man can stand,
Is that chain of hand in hand
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

The only thing that we did wrong,
Stayed in the wilderness a day too long
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

But the one thing that we did right,
Was the day we started to fight
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

We’re gonna board that big Greyhound
Carryin’ love from town to town
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

We’re gonna ride for civil rights
We’re gonna ride to black and white
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

We’ve met jail and violence too,
But God’s love has seen us through
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.]

Haven’t been to heaven but I’ve been told,
Streets up there are paved with gold
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on [Rit.].
