The Legend of the Sand Dollar

Print this page    

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
