OH BUTTERFLY

Oh butterfly how sweet and tender

Is your precious little frame,

So delicate and so petite

Where your beauty does remain.

From a caterpillar you became

A wonder and a delight,

From the dark enclosure of your chrysalis

You are precious in our sight.

But the struggle it was real

As the exodus occurred,

And needed to remain untampered

When the butterfly was birthed.

Likewise when God convicts us

The struggle is very real,

But prepares us unto repentance

So to His beauty we will yield.

Oh butterfly your specks of color

Are beautiful and perfect too,

You simply are a masterpiece

And so gracious in all you do.

Your life span is so very short

But indeed a reminder too,

That our new birth is imperative

When God makes all things new.

From the depths of darkness you were born

But you flourish in all your ways,

And your beauty is a constant reminder

Of the sweetness in every day.

Oh butterfly how remarkable;

You encourage us so well,

Since your gentleness and purity

God’s goodness it does spell.

Your liberty is evident

And you’re free in every way,

Oh butterfly you’re so inspiring

As you bring color to our days.

We thank you for your life

And although you may feel insignificant,

Your presence it speaks volumes

Since you’re truly heaven sent.
