IT’S TIME TO SOAR

butterflies

You are so beautiful
You’ve been given wings to fly
You are complete and healed
My dear little butterfly

You’re free now, free to soar
To places you’ve never been
Take your vibrant colours
You’ll find life in pastures green

Oh! … no, no, no, no, no
You cannot go back and hide
In the cocoon so dark
The law, it has past aside

You’ll reach the mountaintop
And see through pure eyes of awe
To lowest valley dip
There your hard heart, it will thaw

Do you not know sweet one
You are a new creation
Your caterpillar days
Have drowned in deepest ocean

So … no, no, no, no, no
You cannot go back and hide
In the cocoon so dark
The law, it has past aside

The chain has been released
And you have been forgiven
Would you want to return
To a void without heaven

Would you want to return
To life without hope and light
To a life of bondage
Where you’ll always be bound tight

Butterfly, butterfly
Free to share God’s love, peace and joy
Go touch another
Let your gifts alight
Let your gentleness
Land on everything that’s right
Don’t look back
Don’t look back
Spread your butterfly wings
And with the Father’s heart reunite
Unite
He’s just waiting for you to take flight
