Hawk Nelson Shares Story Behind Words

Hawk Nelson's new song, ''Words," featuring Bart from MercyMe, is meant to emphasize the importance of thinking before you speak.

"'Words' really speaks to the heart of what God's been teaching us as a band over the past few months. The words we speak are a powerful testament to who we are and how we influence those around us. We truly have the power to either speak life into others or break them down depending on the choices we make," explains lead singer Jonathan Steingard. "It's been our prayer as a band to say to God that we want to be His light… that we want to speak His love into people's lives every day. Whether that means being on stage and playing shows, or whether that's with our wives, families, or friends, we just want to be really intentional about speaking life into people."
