Wood and Nails

Bonsai tree
Bonsai tree

Verse 1

The one in whom all things consist
Descended from His glory
To be a baby, weak, helpless
A stable starts His story
Snuffling snouts and heavy hooves
Mom kept Him out of danger
Just as the angels spread the news
The Savior’s in the manger
 
Chorus 1
Wood and nails, Nails and wood
Held God’s only Son
Wood and nails, Nails and wood
Love incarnate come
 
Verse 2
An angry mob, a sentence cruel
To die upon a cross
Though blameless righteous sinless pure
He paid sin’s deathly cost
The hammer falls; He’s lifted up
To hang upon that cursed tree
Thirsty He drank the bitter cup
Gave up His spirit freely

Chorus 2
Wood and nails, Nails and wood
Held God’s only Son
Wood and nails, Nails and wood
Love incarnate done

Verse 3
But death could not keep hold of Him
He rose up on the third day
Blessed are those who look to Him
He’ll wash their sins away
No locked doors can keep Him out
He seeks for His disciples
And if His love you ever doubt
Look fresh upon His scars
 
Chorus 3
Wood and nails, Nails and wood
No more hold God’s Son
Wood and nails, Nails and wood
Love incarnate won!
