A Candymaker's Witness
The Candy Cane

A Candy Maker In Indiana Wanted To Make Candy That Would Be A Witness
So He Made The Christmas Candy Cane

He Began With A Stick Of Pure White, Hard Candy
White Symbolizes The Virgin Birth And Sinless Nature Of Jesus
Hard Represents The Solid Rock
The Foundation Of The Church And Firmness Of The Promises Of God

The Candy Maker Made The Candy In The Form Of A "J"
To Represent The Precious Name Of Jesus Who Came To Earth As Our Savior
The Shape Could Also Stand For The Staff Of The Good Shepherd
With Which He Reaches Down To Lift Out The Fallen Lambs
Who, Like All Sheep, Have Gone Astray

Thinking That The Candy Was Somewhat Plain
The Candy Maker Stained It With Red Stripes
He Used Three Small Stripes
The Stripes Show The Scourging Jesus Received, By Which We Are Healed
The Large Stripe Was For The Blood Shed By Christ On The Cross
So That We Could Have The Promise Of Eternal Life

Unfortunately, The Candy Became Known As The Candy Cane
A Meaningless Decoration Seen At Christmas Time
But The Meaning Is Still There For Those Who Have Eyes To See And Ears To Hear

We Pray That This Symbol Will Again Be Used To Witness To The Wonder Of Jesus
His Great Love That Came At Christmas
And Remains The Ultimate, Dominant Force In The Universe Today
