The Legend of the Sand Dollar

The Legend of the Sand Dollar

There’s a lovely little legend
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lovely shell.

If you examine closely
You’ll see that you find here
Four nail holes and a fifth one
Made by a Roman’s spear.

On one side the Easter Lily
In its center is the star
That appeared unto the shepherds
And led them from afar.

The Christmas Poinsettia
Etched on the other side
Reminds us of His Birthday
Our Happy Christmastide.

Now break the center open
And here you will release
The five while doves awaiting
To spread Good Will and Peace.

This simple little symbol
Christ left for you and me
To help us spread His Gospel
Through all Eternity
