Like Arrows by Matt Hammitt – #LikeArrows

This weeks Christian Music Monday is by Matt Hammitt and the song Like Arrows. There is also a great movie about Like Arrows too. I highly recommend you watch that movie!

Matt Hammitt is an Christian American singer, songwriter, speaker and author. He was the lead singer for Sanctus Real (1996-2015).

3 Behold, children are a gift of the Lord,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior,
So are the children of one’s youth.
How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them;
They will not be ashamed
When they speak with their enemies in the gate.

Psalm 127:3-5

Children are a gift from God!

The movie is about the art of parenting, where Charlie and Alice try to change their parenting strategy when conflict, rebellion and resentment overwhelm their family. To their surprise, they soon find that effective, lifelong solutions were closer than they had ever imagined.

Lyrics

Oh, it’s the greatest, hardest thing we’ll ever do
To raise ’em on a straight and narrow truth
Send them out beyond their wildest dreams
Sons and daughters are the legacy

Pray on through, this crazy life
And watch ’em fly straight to
The target that we’re aiming for, it’s you
The target that we’re aiming for is you

To the ends of the earth they will take this light
Like a torch that’s flying through the darkest night
Lift ’em up, pull back the bow
Say a prayer and let ’em go like arrows
Send ’em out like arrows

Oh, it’s the most important battle we will fight
We’ve got to give ’em more than words, let’s give our lives
Oh, it takes patience, it takes courage, it takes heart
We may be broken but it’s not too late to start

Pray on through, this crazy life
And watch ’em fly straight to
The target that we’re aiming for, it’s you
The target that we’re aiming for is you

To the ends of the earth they will take this light
Like a torch that’s flying through the darkest night
Lift ’em up, pull back the bow
Say a prayer and let ’em go like arrow
Send ’em out like arrows

I have decided to follow Jesus
No turning back, no turning back
I have decided (we have decided)
To follow Jesus (to follow Jesus)
No turning back (no turning back)
No turning back (no turning back!)

To the ends of the earth they will take this light
Like a torch that’s flying through the darkest night
Lift ’em up, pull back the bow
Say a prayer and let ’em go like arrows…
(To the ends of the earth they will take this light)
Send ’em out like arrows
(Like a torch that’s flying through the darkest night)
Like arrows
(To the ends of the earth they will take this light)
Send ’em out like arrows
