Did you ever watch a butterfly,
Emerge from a woven cocoon?
And wonder how such a pretty thing,
Could emerge from such a brown tomb?
As a caterpillar, it once crept,
A thing that many may despise.
Now, its beauty is a thing of awe
That will brighten the sunlit skies.
We, as people, in our sinful state,
Are much like that ugly old worm.
There isn’t much that’s an attraction;
Most anyone would gladly confirm.
When Jesus changes that sinful life,
Old things surely all pass away.
There’s a much sweeter disposition
That will help to brighten a day.
But when this body has passed away,
Then, at the sound of trumpet call;
We’ll be truly transformed, like Christ.
There’ll be true beauty for us all!
