Forged The Nails

Our sins . . .
  forged the nails that fastened Him to the tree,
  planted the thorns that pierced His brow, and
  sharpened the spear that was thrust into His heart!

O what an evil must sin be–to bring the Son of God into such a state of suffering and humiliation!

O what love must the love of Jesus be–that induced Him to take our place, and suffer and die in our stead!

-James Smith
