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 bag full of jellybeans colorful and sweet,
is a prayer, is a promise, is a special treat.

Below is a beautiful Jelly Bean Poem for Teachers written by Mrs. Coe

I think this is great for attaching to a bag of jelly beans for a teacher gift.
