Eyes On The Prize
Mavis Staples Lyrics


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

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

Paul and Silas began to shout
Doors popped open, and they walked out
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

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

Well, the only chains that we can stand
Are the chains of hand in hand
Keep your eyes on the prize

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

Got my hand on the freedom plow
Wouldn't take nothing for my journey now
Keep your eyes on the prize

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

The images are from scenes which took place during my lifetime....not a hundred years ago. It is shameful and horrible in so many ways. It took some very brave and deeply committed people to bring about change. And man, we still have a long way to go!

+NicolletIslandSlim Mine too. I remember it like yesterday. Serious business that was. Still is.

It's lonely sometimes, being a black person in a community of mostly white people who don't understand the lingering bitterness, or who don't recognize the lingering oppression.
That said this is the best version I've ever heard of this song, sick percussion, my god

Mike Levand

Yes, the percussion in this song is God-Inspired!

Oh, HELL, yes. That’s a very nice groove to go with the amazing footage. That’s a great documentary.
