The Legend of the Candy Cane


Its just a little
Christmas treat
But also did you know?
It represents our saviour
Born so long ago
The shape is like a letter J
To symbolize His name
The white is for His holiness
A life lived without blame
The stripe of red
Is for His blood
Shed for you and me
Turn it around and
His shepherds crook
You will plainly see
And put two canes together
Touching and not apart
And you will see before you
Our Saviours bleeding heart.
