S0014 Three Nails of Wrought
Three nails of wrought a blacksmith made, their purpose was not known.
The soldier said make them strong and straight, for they must hold a load.
The blacksmith made them straight and true, and thick to hold great weight.
These nails were just a job to him, he did not know their fate.
The soldier took the nails and left, he had a job to do.
To drive them in a dogwood cross, to pierce his precious skin.
To let the sins of the whole world come flooding in.
These three nails of wrought held the lot, our Savior passed away.
To rise again and forgive our sins upon that glorious day.
Three nails of wrought from a blacksmith sought.
Their purpous finaly known.
