Not The Nails

 

Not The Nails
By Doreen Margaret Higgs
~

It was not the nails that held him
my Saviour, to the tree,
but love it was that held Him there,
His love for you and me.
It was not the crown of thorns he wore,
that gave my Lord such pain,
but the sin of man He bore that day,
so heaven we all could gain.
It was not the sword that pierced his side,
that made Him shed His blood,
It was not the pain that made him cry
to His Father up above.
“Forgive them for they do not know
what they do this day”.
In love our Saviour pleaded
as His life ebbed away.
It was not the nails that held Him
my Saviour to that tree,
Love it was that held Him there,
His love for you and me.

‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son
that whosoever believes on Him should not perish but have everlasting life.’
[John 3.16]
