Jelly Bean Prayer

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 you soul and mine.

PURPLE's for the sadness of
HIS family and friends,
and 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.

Give a bag of jelly beans,
Colorful and sweet,
Tell them it's a Prayer...
It's a Promise...
It's an Easter Treat !
