I like the poem so much that I wanted to set it to some music, and I figured out that it goes really well with "Doe a Deer" from Sound of Music. (That I conveniently had just taught my choir last week!) So they caught on to this really fast tonight! I'll write it out below, so you get a better idea of how it goes. :) If you have any questions let me know!
Red is for the blood He gave.
(Do a deer a female deer.)
Green is for the grass made.
(Re a drop of golden sun.)
Yellow is for the sun so bright.
(Mi a name I call myself.)
Orange is for the edge of night.
(Fa a long, long way to run.)
Black is for the sins we made.
(So a needle pulling thread.)
White is for the grace He gave.
(La a note to follow so.)
Purple for His hour of sorrow.
(Ti a drink with jam and bread.)
Pink is for a new tomorrow. (to-mo-ro-o-ow)
(That will bring us back to do-oh-oh-oh)
Pretty catchy huh? I really like it, and it went over really well with my 4-6 year olds. So I hope you and yours enjoy it too. Here's the printable coloring sheet/craft:
Another example of one:
Enjoy! And Happy Easter! :)
