We loan because...
Version One :


The legend of the Sand Dollar


There's a pretty little legend
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lowly shell.


If 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
And led them from afar.


The Christmas poinsettia,
Etched on the other side
Reminds us of His birthday,
Our happy Christmastide.


Now break the center open,
And here you will release
The five white doves awaiting
To spread Good will and peace.


This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me
To help us spread His Gospel
Through all eternity.


Version Two :


Upon this odd-shaped sea shell
A legend grand is told
About the life of Jesus
The wondrous tale of old


The center marking plainly shows
The well known Guiding Star
That led to tiny Bethlehem
The Wise Men from afar


The Christmas flower, Poinsettia
For His Nativity
The Resurrection too is marked
The Easter Lily, see


Five wounds were suffered by our Lord
From nails and Roman's spear
When He died for us on the cross
The wounds show plainly here


Within the shell, should it be broke,
Five Doves of Peace are found
To emphasize this legend
So may Love and Peace abound


Version Three :


The Sand Dollar Legend


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 wise men 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.


Version Four :


The legend of the Sand dollar
That I would like to tell
Of the birth and death of Jesus
Found in this lovely shell.
If you will examine closely,
You'll see that you find here
Four nail holes a fifth one
Made by a Roman's spear.
On one side the Easter Lily,
It's center is the star
That appeared unto the shepherds
And led them from afar.
The Christmas Poinsettia
Etched on the other side
Reminds 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 good will and peace
This simple little symbol,
Christ left for you and me.
