The Jelly Bean Prayer  

 (the story of God's love as told by jelly beans)

 by Shirley Kozak, Stuttgart Germany, 1990

Red is for the blood He gave.
Green is for the grass He made.
Yellow is for the sun so bright.
Orange is for the edge of night.
Black 
is for the sins we made.
White 
is for the grace He gave.
Purple is for His hour of sorrow.
Pink  is for our new tomorrow.
A bag full of jellybeans
colorful and sweet,
is a prayer, is a promise,
is a special treat.
May the joy of Christ's resurrection
Fill your hearts and bless your life.
