Red is for the life of the body
Orange is for the sunset sublime
Yellow is for the zest of lemons
Green is for the beauty of growth
Blue is for life-giving water
Purple is for God’s majesty and truth
It is a bow, and the arrow meant for us was taken by Jesus.
His red blood soaked into the ground
The golden sun was darkened
and the green earth moaned and trembled
tears fell in saltwater rain
and the great King died
Together, they make pure light in white, blooming on Easter morning as the dead king returned to life.
Together, they show God’s mercy on a world that doesn’t deserve it.
The rainbow belongs to God. For He created it.
