Hawk Nelson featuring Bart Millard, “Words”

Contemporary Christian rock band Hawk Nelson has released Words, the carrier single of the new release, Made, set to drop on April 2 in digital and CD formats. Words is receiving phenomenal reactions from the Christian AC community, despite the absence of former lead vocalist Jason Dunn, who left to pursue a solo career. Jonathan Steingard stepped up to the plate and knocked his new role as lead vox out of the ballpark. Together with bassist Daniel Biro and drummer Justin Benner, methinks Hawk Nelson’s new sound will win definitely the band even more fans.

Words offers Christian music lovers an extra treat: guest vocals from MercyMe frontman Bart Millard. Millard’s distinctive vocals add an even more majestic sound to the anthemic chorus of Words. Most added at Christian AC, most added at Christian CHR, one of the most added added at Christian Soft AC/Inspo… mark my words – see what I did there? – Words will be one of Hawk Nelson’s biggest hits ever.

WORDS Lyrics
Hawk Nelson

They’ve made me feel like a prisoner
They’ve made me feel set free
They’ve made me feel like a criminal
Made me feel like a king

They’ve lifted my heart
To places I’d never been
And they’ve dragged me down
Back to where I began

Words can build you up
Words can break you down
Start a fire in your heart or
Put it out

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You

You can heal the heartache
Speak over the fear
(Speak over the fear)
God, Your voice is the only thing
We need to hear
(We need to hear)

Words can build us up
Words can break us down
Start a fire in our hearts or
Put it out

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)

Let the words I say
(Let the words I say)
Be the sound of Your grace
(Sound like Your grace)
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You

I wanna speak Your love
Not just another noise
Oh, I wanna be Your light
I wanna be Your voice

Let my words be life
Let my words be truth
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)

Let the words I say
(Let the words I say)
Be the sound of Your grace
(Sound like Your grace)
I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
(Back to You)

Words can build us up
Words can break us down
Start a fire in our hearts
Or put it out

I don’t wanna say a word
Unless it points the world back to You
