Short program to select lines from a file based on a second file

Hello,

I use UBUNTU 12.04.

I want to write a short program using awk to select some lines in a file based on a second file.

My first file has this format with about 400,000 lines and 47 fields:
SNP1 1 12.1
SNP2 1 13.2
SNP3 1 45.2
SNP4 1 23.4
My second file has this format:
SNP2
SNP3
SNP5
SNP10

I want to have an output like this:
SNP2 1 13.2
SNP3 1 45.2
SNP5 1 23.2
SNP10 1 45.2
That is I have basically the first file but only with the SNPs that exist in the second file, it is important that it gives me back the whole row.

I wrote a code as following but it does not work:

Code:
BEGIN{
OFS=ORS=" "
}
{
if(FILENAME==ARGV[1]){SNP_name[$1]=FNR}
if(FILENAME==ARGV[2]){
if($1 in SNP_name){sel[SNP_name[$1]]=$1}
{
print $0 > test
}

Thank you for any help.
