Hammer of Love

Liner Notes: 

I felt compelled to write this as a reminder to myself. And once the words tumbled out in about 5 minutes, I knew I had to let my voice alone be the instrument.

Lyrics: 

Hammer of love - sturdy and strong
Chip away at that wall all day long
Sweat on my brow, been working so hard
With my hammer of love been traveling far

Hammer of love - you make me feel
I can do anything with your wood and steel
I can tear down and build up again
Hammer of love - means to an end

Sometimes we work late into the night
Muscles are aching but I'm doing what's right
Always a new job needs a steady hand
With my hammer of love
I'm a steadier man

Hammer of love you swing a wide arc
Land square on that nail
Give off a spark
Tool of my calling
Though I didn't ask
Hammer of love make me up to the task



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Gospel this up - big organ, drums, choir! Biggrin You know it's a good song when an acappella version communicates it entirely effectively, however! Smile
