Lyrics

I SWUNG THE HAMMER ©2006 DiLuigi/Pearson/Rowland
Pilate gave the order, "Build another cross"
They marched behind the prisoner without a second thought
The soldier who used to be a carpenter like him
Said "My hands were always steady, 'til I drove those three nails in"

He swung the hammer, he struck the blows
This man they called Jesus, didn't curse him like most
With eyes filled with mercy, God's love overflowed
How could Jesus forgive him, didn't He know?
He swung the hammer, he struck the blows

At three o'clock that Friday, beneath the blackened sky
"Truly this was The Son of God", the Captain did cry
I wasn't there at Calvary, but I've come to know the truth
My sin put Jesus on the Cross, I was guilty , too

I swung the hammer, I struck the blows
The blood of my Jesus, washed me white as snow
From His heart of mercy, God's love overflowed
How could He forgive me, didn't He know?
I swung the hammer, I struck the blows

Like the Captain, who learned the truth, as Jesus died
The Lord changed my sinful heart and gave me new life

(Though) I swung the hammer and I struck the blows
The blood of my Jesus, washed me white as snow
From His heart of mercy, God's love overflowed
How could He forgive me, didn't He know?
I swung the hammer, I struck the blows
