Music Moves Me: “The Coloring Song”

This past Tuesday was such a beautiful autumn day. I would’ve been outside taking in nature’s sweet perfumes and the golden sun, but that 50 degree weather was keeping me inside admiring the day from my room. Autumn isn’t my favorite season, but I do love the refreshing breezes, as well as the trees shedding their leaves upon the earth. I’m captivated how the leaves morph from dark and light greens to yellows, golds, browns, oranges, and reds.

Fall with it’s beautiful colors reminds me of a song I learned long ago as a child in my church. I learned a lot of hymns growing up, so don’t be surprised if I share a song with you often. Today’s featured song for Music Moves Me is called The Coloring Song.

“Red is the color of the blood that flowed

Down the face of someone who loved us so

He’s the perfect man, He’s the Lord’s own son

He’s the lamb of God, He’s the only one

That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can make the love between us flow

Blue is the color of a heart so cold

That will not bend when the story’s told

Of the love of God for a sinful race

Of the blood that flowed down Jesus’s face

That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can keep our hearts from growing cold

Gold is the color of the morning sun

That shines so freely on everyone

It’s the sun above that keeps us warm

It’s the Son of Love that calms the storm

That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can turn our mornings into gold

Brown is the color of the autumn leaves

When the winter comes to the barren trees

There is birth, there is death, there is a plan

And there’s just one God and there’s just one man

That can give us life, that can make us grow

That can make our sins as white as snow”

I hope you enjoyed this song. Until next time, friends and family.✌🏾 God Bless.

I was born on January 31, 1992. I graduated from Austin Peay State University in December 2015 with a B.S. My major was Communications, with a concentration in Print & Web Journalism. My minor was English, with a concentration in Creative Writing. Writing is my passion. I’m a book lover. I prefer to to be called a Booklion rather than a bookworm. Why- lions are mightier.
My first love is Jesus Christ. I was raised in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church. No we are not a cult. We are Christians who worship on Saturday.
I have been stuttering since I was four, but through Christ I have persevered through it and will continue to do so. I’m not thing with Him.
Singing is another passion of mine. God blessed with me with the gift of song, which I am grateful for.
