THERE IS A LOVELY LEGEND
THAT I AM GOING TO TELL,
OF THE BIRTH AND DEATH OF JESUS
FOUND IN THIS  LOWLY SHELL.

WHEN 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,
ITS CENTER IS THE STAR,
THAT APPEARED UNTO THE SHEPHERDS,
THAT LED THEM FROM AFAR.

THE CHRISTMAS POINSETTIA,
ETCHED ON THE OTHER SIDE,
REMINDS OF US OF HIS BIRTHDAY.
OUR HAPPY CHRISTMAS-TIDE.

NOW BREAK THE CENTER OPEN,
AND HERE YOU WILL RELEASE,
THE FIVE WHITE DOVES AWAITING,
TO SPREAD GOODWILL AND PEACE.

THIS SIMPLE LITTLE SYMBOL,
CHRIST LEFT FOR YOU AND ME,
TO HELP US SPREAD HIS GOSPEL
THROUGH ALL ETERNITY.
