The candy maker created the cane
As a reminder of the Saviour who came.
He used hard candy to symbolize
The Rock of Ages, Jesus Christ.
He made it white to signify
Christ's purity and sinless life.
He fashioned the candy the shape of a staff,
For the Good Shepherd, who died on our behalf.
A wide stripe represents Christ's blood,
Shed on the cross for the sins of the world.
Then he added three thin stripes
To depict the suffering of Jesus Christ.
The candy cane gives to all
An important message to recall.
Remember that Jesus is the reason
We celebrate the Christmas season.
