​The Prize

This song is by First Call and appears on the album First Call (1996).

A child of God in the heat of it all
Staggering under the weight of the call
Eyes upon the only One who knows
The forerunner of my faith
Who for joy set the pace
Understands the war against my soul

He says move on
You gotta let it go
What's done is done
You're on a brave new road

So, I'm taking this
Taking this mighty load
And I'm leaving it behind
I'm gonna make it on
Make it on down the road
Reaching for the prize
Oh, for the prize

Every time I shed my skin
I find the courage once again
To agonize the agony of faith
Breathe in me the will to try
In my body magnify
To know that you have suffered not in vain

He says to hold on
You gotta let it show
You know what's yours
Down this brave new road

So, I'm taking this
Taking this mighty load
And I'm leaving it behind
I'm gonna make it on
Make it on down the road
Reaching for the prize
For the prize

It heals a piece of my soul when I shed my skin
And I leave it behind and start over again
Shaking this mighty load
Oh, I've been staggering under the heat of the call
But I get up and I move on after I fall
Making it down the road

He says move on
You gotta let it go
You know what's yours
Down this brave new road

So, I'm taking this
Taking this mighty load
And I'm leaving it behind
(Ooh, whoa)
I'm gonna make it on
(Make it on)
Make it on down the road
Reaching for the prize

So, I'm taking this
I'm gonna leaving it behind
(Oh, leaving it all, leaving it all behind)
I'm gonna make it on
Oh, make it on down
