The Color Song aka The Crayon Box

With my last couple of groups of kids, I was determined every week for a year we would have a different song. That's not working out real well this time around. I'm determined to post every Sunday though.

It's been so long since we've really sung, I even messed up on this one. They absolutely were not having learning the last verse they haven't sung before. Nope. We don't sing that. Nuh, uh.


The Crayon Box Song

Written by William V. Mason


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 and I opened them up
And I looked way down inside,
And the colors there reminded me
Of Jesus when He died.

O… Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown is for the crown of thorns they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! In Heaven He does dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.

I colored and I colored
'Til the crayons were all gone,
And though I am much older now,
The mem'ry lingers on.
And when I see a little child
With crayon box in hand,
I tell them what they mean to me
And hope they'll understand.

O… Red is the color of the blood that He shed,
Brown is for the crown of thorns they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! In Heaven He does dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.


Afraid to tell of a Savior

Who died on Calvary,
He died for lowly sinners
Just like you and me;
And someday soon He's coming back
To be our King,
And the colors of the crayon box
We will sing!


O… Red is the color of the blood that He shed,

Brown is for the crown of thorns they laid upon His head.
Blue is for royalty! In Heaven He does dwell;
And yellow is for the Christian who's afraid to tell.


So, don't you be a Christian, who's afraid to tell!
