1st Verse:

When GI was just a Dlittle child,
No Ghigher than your Cknee,
my Gmama bought a Dbox of crayons,
CJust for Gme.
So I Gpicked them up and I Dopened them
and I Glooked way down in-Cside
and the Gcolors they re-Dminded me of
CJesus when He Gdied…


CRed is the color of the
Gblood that He shed and
DBrown is for the crown of thorns they
CLaid upon His Ghead.
CBlue is for the royalty
with-Gin Him that dwells and
DYellow’s for the Christian
CWho’s afraid to Gtell.

2nd Verse:

So I Gcolored, and I Dcolored,
till my Gcrayons, they were all Cgone
and Gthough I am much Dolder now my
CMem’ry lingers Gon.
So Gwhen I see a Dlittle child,
with a Gcrayon box in their Chand,
I Gtell them all the Dcolors and I
CHope they under-Gstand:

3rd Verse:

GAfraid to tell of a DSaviour, Who
GDied on Calva-Cry,
Who Gdied for all the Dsinners like
CYou and Gme.
He’s Gcoming back a-Dgain someday
to Gbe our CKing
and the Gcolors of the Dcrayon box
CWe will Gsing:


So Ddon’t you be that Christian,
CWho’s afraid to Gtell.
