Crayon Song



When I was just a little child, no higher than your knee;
My Mother bought a box of crayons, just for me.
I picked them up, I opened them up,
Then I looked way down inside;
And the colors they reminded me of Jesus when he died.

Chorus

Red is the color of the blood that he shed.
Brown is for the crown of thorns they placed upon his head.
Blue is for royalty that in him did dwell.
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.

I colored and I colored til the crayons were all gone.
And tho' I've grown much older now, the truth lingers on.
When I se a little child with crayon box in hand,
I'll tell him what they mean to me,
And hope he understands.

Chorus

Red is the color of the blood that he shed.
Brown is for the crown of thrones they placed upon his head.
Blue is for royalty that in him did dwell.
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.
Afraid to tell of the Savior who died on Calvary,
Who died for lonely sinners, Just like me.
Some day he is coming back to be our King,
And the colors in that crayon box, you will see.


It wasn't nails that held him on the cross.
It was love.
What have you done for him lately?
Go Tell!
