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.
