Driving Nails

This song is by Bruce Carroll and appears on the album Richest Man In Town (1988).

Since that blessed night in the manger
She watched her baby grow
It seems Like yesterday He was in her arms
Where did the time go?
He learned His Father's trade
As she marveled at it all
The sweat dropped from her Little Carpenter
As He made the timbers fall

She can hear the drivin' nails upon the hillside
And she prays that His spirit will not fail
She watches as her young man undertakes His Father's will
As she stands and listens to the drivin' nails

In the streets of Jerusalem
A child can disappear
She was frantic as she looked for Him
Until she began to hear
The hammers up at the temple
She called Him as she ran
Surprised she found Him teaching
Like no ordinary man

She can hear the drivin' nails upon the hillside
And she prays that His spirit will not fail
She watches as her young man undertakes His Father's will
As she stands and listens to the drivin' nails

Darkness covered all the land
In the middle of the day
She began to tremble
As the earth began to quake
Hammers, nails and timbers
Of The carpenter's trade
Made the sound that pierced her soul
As the cross was being raised

She can hear the drivin' nails upon the hillside
And she prays that His spirit will not fail
She watches as her young man undertakes His Father's will
As she stands and listens to the drivin' nails
And she cries and listens to the drivin' nails
