Peg Luke’s “Dirt Under His Nails” Maintains Her Inner Spiritual Drive

Award-winning artist and multi-instrumentalist, Peg Luke, has unveiled her latest single, “Dirt Under His Nails,”  a new composition that ignites imagination and serves as a tribute to enduring devotion. The song comes with a fascinating music video restaging the crucifixion of Jesus, and traces the Son of God’s journey as He carries the cross and offers salvation to sinners. The visuals guide viewers to His resurrection on the third day, restoring Him as Christ and Lord.

Written and composed entirely by Peg Luke herself, the song transports its audience to a place of depth, shining a light on God’s incredible sacrifice: “He searched high and low/ He bares the scars of His love/ And He is ready to journey some more/ With a pack on his back, sheepskin sandals/ He’s looking for You and Me/ He’s got/ Dirt Under His Nails/ When He healed the sick/ When He cured the lame/ When He walked to Calvary/ He’s got Dirt Under His Nails/ Thorns on His Head/ Tears in His eyes/ Nails in His feet.

“Dirt Under His Nails” hits its most gripping climax by exploring the intense moments of the crucifixion. The song paints His death as a powerful and poetic way to wipe clean the slate of sin. This feeling captures the heart of salvation, pushing listeners to think about what the sacrifice really means. As they contemplate the song, Peg succeeds in making the image of His suffering stronger, creating a vivid experience that’s easy to grasp.

Centering on the infinite love bestowed upon humanity from God, Luke’s track communicates a sensation of purity and brilliance that words find difficulty in expressing to its fullest extent. This indescribable feeling acts as a recall of the timeless link connecting mankind and the sacred. The song’s conclusion lingers in the listener’s thoughts, resonating with the lasting influence of Jesus’ sacrifice and the all-encompassing aspects of love and spiritual longing.

Joining her impressive lineup, Luke’s latest single, “Dirt Under His Nails,” now stands shoulder-to-shoulder with celebrated tracks like “Amazing Grace,” “Love Lifted Me,” “The Lord’s Prayer,” “God Will Be My Peace,” “The Greatest Gift,” and “I Am Home, Lord.” Looking ahead, Peg’s creative journey extends as she teams up with the Grammy-winning producer Neal Merrick Blackwood for a delightful Christmas album anticipated to unwrap its musical charms this upcoming November.
