Gospel Plow

Freedom’s name is mighty sweet
And soon we’re gonna meet
Keep your eyes on the prize
Hold on

The interpretation of this song provides hope to the audience that is listening to the song. The lyrics to the best known version were composed by civil rights activist Alice Wine, who wrote them in 1956. It spoke about the America Civil Rights Movement, a time where they were mass amounts of people being put in jail for protesting.

It  carried a special meaning to many of the protesters and freedom riders of that era. Despite being beaten, jailed, and ridiculed, they stood strong and unwavering, keeping their eyes on the prize of freedom. The title of this song basically tells us what the song was trying to get at, to not lose faith and that someday things will be right again.
