Columbia

“Columbia”

If every star should fall from the sky,

Let not the tears fall from your eye,

You are not alone;

And in the vast expanse of space,

time and meaning converge in one place,

I am home.

I’ve lived a life of courage proud,

For the good of mankind in the crowd,

And what could be;

Though we may ask “why” to a higher power,

None of us know the day or hour,

We’re coming home to thee.

Don’t look into the skies and weep,

Let not your heart fall asleep,

Live, love as you can;

Seven stars will twinkle bright,

In the skies upon every night,

We are not sand.

Now here’s the message from the Christ,

We don’t live once, but twice,

No man is of stone;

And in the vast expanse of space,

Time and meaning converge in one place,

I am home.
