Dancing Nigh to Heaven


Christian Poem Dancing Nigh to Heaven

“For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.” ~ Romans 1:20


Butterfly, butterfly,

Tell me why do you dance?

Is there a source of your joy,

Or do your wings flit by chance?


Flower of the field,

Why do you brightly bloom?

Do the colors of your petals

Reflect a love to consume?


Leaves of the trees,

Why do you wave at me?

Do your whispers in the winds

Speak of eternity?


Water of the seas,

Why do you sparkle bright?

Is it that you are enamored

With Son’s glorious light?


Clouds of the sky,

Why do you spread and smile?

Does dancing nigh to heaven

Bring you joy all the while?


Please tell me your secrets,

For them I wish to hear,

Please whisper your wisdom,

For to me it is dear.


Faithfully you share

The source and the reason:

Jesus is your joy

Each moment, each season.


So my heart now

Joins you in sweet praise;

For He is also the source

Of bliss in all my days.

Leaves and clouds,

Splashing waters of the sea,

You sing a song of Jesus

That resonates with me.

Yea, all is by His grace,

Naught is left to chance,

So butterfly, butterfly,

I delight in your dance.
