Representative Text

1 Paul and Silas bound in jail,
Had nobody for to go their bail.
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on.

Refrain:
Hold on, hold on.
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on.

2 Paul and Silas began to shout,
Jail door opened and they walked out.
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on. [Refrain]

3 God gave Noah the rainbow sign,
No more water, the fire next time.
Keep your hand on that plow, hold on. [Refrain]

4 The only chain a man can stand
Is the chain from hand to hand.
Keep your eyes on that prize, hold on.

Hold on, hold on.
Keep your eyes on that prize, hold on.
