The Jelly Bean Prayer

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 basket of Jelly Beans
is colorful and sweet,

a prayer and a promise,

a very special treat.

May the joy of Christ’s Resurrection
Fill your heart and Bless your life.
