Little jelly beans

Tell a story true.

A tale of Father’s love

Just for me and you.

GREEN is for the waving palms.

YELLOW is for the sun above.

BROWN is for the soft earth where

People sat hearing of HIS love.

A SPECKLED bean for fish and sand.

RED for precious wine and

BLACK is for the sin

He washed from your soul and mine.

PURPLE’S for the sadness of

HIS family and His friends,

WHITE is for the glory of

The Day HE rose again.

Now that you’ve heard the story

You know what each color means.

The story of our Father’s love

Told by some jelly beans.

So every morning take a bean

They’re really very yummy.

Something for the soul, you see

And something for the tummy.

Happy Easter
