If you haven’t gotten your copy of Sara’s new album yet, then here’s your chance to hear one of the brand new songs off the record! Sara Groves and friend, Steve Mason (of Jars of Clay), play “Eyes On The Prize” in the video below!
I was in a conversation with a friend at International Justice Mission about longevity and having fortitude for the long haul, and had been looking for a song to encourage those from the organization. Another friend had given me a collection of civil rights songs a couple years ago, and I just love listening to those songs rallying around freedom. We’ve spent a lot of time working with IJM, and trying to share this message of combating modern day slavery and human trafficking, and so I found this song and thought “What a cool song this would be to re-make.” It was originally called “The Gospel Plow” and was an old hymn that was re-written during the civil rights movement to be “Eyes On The Prize.” – Sara Groves

The song lives on, and unfortunately there’s a need for it in multi-generations. There still is a need for freedom to be sung, and there are still slaves being held captive around the world. – Troy Groves
