The Legend Of The First Robin




One Day
Long Ago
A Little Bird In Galilee Saw A Large Crowd Gathered Around A Man
The Man Was Carrying A Heavy Wooden Cross


On The Man's Head Was A Crown Made From A Thorn Branch
The Thorns Were Long And Sharp
The Little Bird Saw That The Thorns Were Hurting The Man
The Little Bird Wanted To Help Him
So It Flew Down And Took The Longest, Sharpest Thorn In Its Tiny Beak

The Bird Tugged And Pulled Until The Thorn Snapped From The Branch
Then A Strange Thing Happened
A Drop Of Blood Fell Onto The Bird's Breast And Stained It Bright Red

The Red Stain Never Went Away
And So Today The Robin Proudly Wears A Red Breast
And All Because It Helped A Man Named Jesus
