The newness of butterflies who bring offerings
of newness of life to the Risen King
Who transforms us and forms us afresh and anew
and brings to new dawning the fragrance of youth
wrapped around us in splendor, fresh vigor and vim –
like cloaked wings dries strong in the image of Him
Who with tenderness, meaning, purpose, and power
calls us forth like the butterfly unto the flower
to be fed and adorn, fly free and spread seed,
and He Who commands us will meet every need
through our season of life and still through to the end
’til we’re caught up to greet Him in His Mighty Wind
with new lives all around us below and above,
to the Throne that surrounds us with pervading LOVE
where sits God Most High, Who also looks low
upon the winged beauties wherever they go.
Praise to Holy Father and to Holy Son
and to Holy Spirit, the Three Who are One;
praise He Who leads butterflies forth from cocoon,
and died for our new life, and IS coming soon!
