lyrics

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

Paul and Silas began to shout,
Jail door opened and they walked out,
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

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

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

The only chain that we can stand,
Is that chain of hand in hand,
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on.

The only thing that we did wrong,
Stayed in the wilderness too long,
Keep your eyes on the prize,
Hold on.

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

We’re gonna ride for civil rights,
We’re gonna ride for both black and white,
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
