Jelly Beans And Us

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 SPECLKED bean for fish and sand.
RED for precious wine
BLACK is for the sin He washed
From your soul and mine.

PURPLE is for the sadness of
HIS family and 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.
