Nails

Nails
Held fast
The blood-brushed frames
During Israel's first
     Passover.

Nails
Held sure
The blood-soaked beams
Through Jerusalem's last
     Sacrifice.

Nails
No longer hold
Jesus' blood-stained limbs
To the Crucifix of Shame at
     Golgotha,

But they
Remind us instead
Of the blood-spilled passion
That held Him to that cross,

Paying once for all
The Price of our
     Salvation
