We make our plans, but the Lord directs our steps. Because of drastically changed plans, we were able to stop in Selma, Alabama to record a song on the bridge on our way home from a funeral. That bridge is a place that draws our hearts heavy.

The song we felt compelled to sing there was “Eyes on the Prize” and it’s a traditional Gospel and Folk song that really resonates with us lately, but first came to our attention years ago when a dear lady named Sara Groves recorded a version.

At the same time we were there, another group was there. As we started walking and talking, we learned they too were passing through because of a funeral. Then they asked to stay while we sang.

As we sang, they sang too. Cars passed by making tons of background noise, but in the moment we were captivated by something greater. At the end, we all had tears in our eyes and didn’t want to leave. We all felt compelled to pray. Others came up and asked to join us as we prayed. The love and the unity we experienced as we fixed our eyes on Jesus and contended for freedom and jubilee was truly the Kingdom of God coming near on earth as it is in heaven. We had church on that bridge. And the noise passing by didn’t distract or detract one bit from the glory of what the Lord did in each of our hearts. We needed it. All of us.

Even though the wait is long, may we keep our eyes on the prize, Jesus, bound hand in hand in love and unity.

“Eyes on the Prize” lyrics:
(traditional gospel and folk song, version by Sara Groves)

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

Paul and Silas thought they were lost
The dungeon shook and the chains fell off
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Freedom's name is mighty sweet
And one day soon we are 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

The wait is slow, and we've so far to go
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
The wait is slow, and we've so far to go
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Only chain a man can stand
Is that chain of hand on hand
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

Ain't no man on earth control
The weight of glory on a human soul
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on

The wait is slow, and we've so far to go
Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
The wait is slow, and we've so far to go
Keep your eyes on the prize

When you see a man walk free,
It makes you dream of jubilee
When you see a child walk free,
It makes you dream of jubilee
When you see a family free,
It makes you dream of jubilee

Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on
