Man with the Hammer

your hammer's good
it's headed south
keeps your secret
without a mouth.

the ground is hard
the ground is cold
tells many stories
as I am told.

where you have walked
how much you weigh
cover your clues
because one day.

the smallest fragment
the tiniest hair
well get you life
to this i'll swear.

you make your bed
you dig your grave
and to your guilt
you'll be a slave

Think this out
while you sit in the slammer
He carried the cross
but you bore the hammer.

He took the nails
you pounded in
Forgive them Father
They know not thier sin.

Three days later
The ground will attest
The man was seen walking
along with the rest.

A carpenter by trade
he knew about hammers
He knows about you
his lost little lamb-er.

He stands at the door
Speaks truth and won't stammer
Be the best friend
to the man with the hammer.

"He hath sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening [of the prison] to them that are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." (Isa.61:1,2)

Jesus once said to the Pharisees (who demanded that Jesus silence His followers), "I tell you if they (His followers) keep quiet, even the stones would cry out!" (Luke 19:40) In a culture that seems to stifle and discourage any type of Christian faith expression, we as living stones cry out, seeking to give Jesus the glory that is due Him! - Rod Minaker
