A Nail At Christmas
It’s Christmas time at our house
and we are putting up the tree.
I wish I could find one simple way
to remember Christ’s gift to me.
Some little sign or symbol
to show friends stopping by.
The little baby was born one day,
But He really came to die.
Some symbol of His nail pierced hands,
the blood He shed for you & me…
What if I hung a simple nail
upon my Christmas tree?
A crimson bow tied ’round the nail
as His blood flowed down so free
to save each person from their sin
and redeem us for all eternity.
I know it was His love for us
that held Him to that tree,
but when I see this simple nail
I know He died for me
