The Story of the Jelly Bean

Little jelly beans
Tell a story true.
A tale of our Father’s love
That’s just for me and you.

GREEN is for the new spring grass.
YELLOW is for the sun above.
BROWN is for the soft earth where
People sat hearing of HIS love.

PURPLE’S for the robe he wore
RED is for that precious wine.
BLACK is for the sins He washed
From your soul and mine.

BLUE’S for the sadness of
HIS friends and family,
and WHITE is for the glory of the Day
HE rose for you and me.

Now that you’ve heard the story
You know what each color means.
The story of our Father’s love
As told by jelly beans.
So when you see jelly beans on this Easter season,
stop and remember,
Jesus is the reason!
