A Carpenter's Son

   Words By Donna Hawley
   Music By Gary Livingston

 

Beneath His earthly fatherís bench a little child played
With iron spikes, hammer and wood, Heíd make carpentry His trade
His toys became the tools so familiar to Him, as He grew from a child to a man
Did He know of the part they would one day play in His Heavenly Fatherís plan?

Within His Heavenly Fatherís time His ministry commenced in love
Baptized by John in Jordan's stream, from the heavens descended a dove
A friend to the sinner, a way to the lost, He was followed from place to place
Did He know that this crowd who was singing His praise

††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††††† would soon turn their backs to His face?

 

 

[Bridge]
Born a Carpenter's Son Ė He apprenticed when he was very young

Yet He knew right from the start

That these toys were the tools which would play apart...

He's a Carpenter's Son

 

[Interlude]


Beneath His Heavenly Fatherís throne our broken Savior was laid down
His tools that were toys were used to slay Him, a ring of thorns, a cruel crown
You and I know the truth of this carpenterís son who played with spikes and with wood
Will you testify that His great sacrifice, our God has used for each manís good?

 

[Bridge]

Born a Carpenter's Son Ė He apprenticed when he was very young

And He grew to understand

That these toys were the tools which would pierce His hands

 

Born a Carpenter's Son Ė He apprenticed when he was very young

Let us rise and tell the world about this Carpenter's Son

††††††††† He's a Carpenter's Son... He's a Carpenter's Son...

††††††††† Let's tell everyone about this Carpenter's Son
