The Legend of the Sand Dollar

Upon this odd-shaped seashell,
A legend grand is told,
About the life of Jesus
That wondrous tale of old.

At its center you will see,
there seems to be a star,
like the one that led the shepherds
and wisemen from afar.

Around its surface are the marks
of nails and thorns and spear,
suffered by Christ upon the cross;
the wounds show plainly here.

But there is also an Easter lily,
clear for us to see,
the symbol of Christ's resurrection
for all eternity.
