Everything Is Changing

From the ‘Sing Young, Sing Joyfully’ collection

1. Everything is changing

Like the butterflies

Grow from eggs so tiny

To their adult size.

First as caterpillars

With their funny eyes

Then as chrysalises

Twitching with surprise;

Lastly wings develop,

Wings to fly the skies.


2. God is in the changing

Moving as it goes,

Joining in the rhythm

Like a dancer’s toes.

Found in each beginning,

Present at the close,

Turning with the changes

As a river flows,

God the ever-living

Nurtures all that grows.
