"BUTTERFLY"

Verse 1
Once the night looked kindly,
Once the sun did shine
On you, my gentle treasure,
That once on earth were mine.
Once you smiled to see me,
And once I held you near;
But now my eyes are misty
My treasure's far from here.

Chorus 1
But I'm happy because you're happy,
Because you're in Heaven, safe at last.
Trials are past, pain is over,
That cocoon's no more your home,
For you, our precious Butterfly,
Have flown.

Verse 2
Thank God the race is over,
Thank God the fight is done.
Together with our Savior
We fought the war and won!
With victory now behind us,
I long to soon abide
In Heaven where you're waiting,
Over on the Other Side.

[Repeat Chorus 1]

Bridge
[He's happy Here much stronger now
And learning things so quickly.
He's so alive! He's still your son.
We'll keep him 'til you come.]

Verse 3
Once I held my treasure
Now you're stored away;
Once I dreamed of Heaven:
It's real to me today!
And though I deeply miss you,
How faint my grief shall seem
When I come to join you
Beyond the rainbow's gleam.

Chorus 2
Yes, I'm happy because you're happy,
Because you're in Heaven, safe at last.
Peace and joy, love and laughter
All abound in that new Home,
Where you, our precious Butterfly,
Have flown!

Peace and joy, love and laughter
All abound in that new Home,
Where you, our precious Butterfly,
Have flown!
Yes, you, our -precious Butterfly,
Have flo----wn!
