My Journey to God

Nails

Jesus was a carpenter
With so graceful hands.
His talent clear for all to see
And ready on command,
To do the work of God above
And build a way for us
To find our way back home again
And bask in His great love.
Two blocks of wood and rusty nails
Enough to do the job,
A vision of a bridge you see,
A bridge for one and all.
With these crude and simple tools
For us He then prevailed,
And built a bridge to heaven
With a mere handful of nails.
