I don’t think any other song (save those written in the Bible) has ever affected me as much as this one has. This song literally changed my life, by the God whom the songwriter serves. I pray your heart’s true desire is Him, and that no desire for this world will bind to your heart.
So I picked up a 15/16 Hammer Dulcimer on ebay a couple months ago. It was made by Sydney Martin of The Luthier’s Staff.
Here’s the first song I learned from the hymnal…
Merry Christmas to all, by the grace that has come to us in Christ. Here’s a “less spoken of” perspective on the greatest birth we can celebrate…
Andrew Peterson: “Labor of Love”
Album: Behold the Lamb of God- The True Tall Tale of the Coming of Christ

Some of you know that I love the hammer dulcimer. Some friends of mine, the Williams’, let me borrow one for a while and after trying to play it I have an even greater appreciation for the masters of the instrument. It’s easy to make yourself sound good on the dulcimer, but to play an actual piece right takes some talent!
Anyway, I came across this video and thought I’d share it.
Enjoy, and praise God for His good works!
