Love Held the Nail

I didn’t hold the nail or the hammer, nor did anyone else living today. 

My sin did not force Jesus on the cross, truly I had no part to play.

It was the love of God the Father, who made the call. 

To send His son to die for us all.

No, not one thing that I have done or said could force Jesus to his death. 

Yet it was death He paid, that I might be saved. 

His love extended to great and small.

Love held the nail

Love wielded the hammer

Love thrusted the spear

Love rolled the stone

Love rose the dead

Love saved us all
