Little jelly beans, tell a story true
A tale of our Father's love -
Just for me and you.
GREEN is for the palms to wave.
YELLOW is for the sun above.
BROWN is for the soft earth where
People sat hearing of HIS love.
PURPLE is for the robe he wore
RED, HIS blood, that precious wine
BLACK is for the sins HE washed
From your soul and mine.
BLUE is 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.
bag full of jelly beans colorful and sweet,
Is a PRAYER,
Is a PROMISE,
