They heard your call
        Oh God
And they answered you 
with all their hearts
The stars in the heaven 
        Oh God
Will always carry 
Bits of their souls forever
They died for humanity 
        Oh God 
Helping mankind
Becoming particles of stars 
Circle-ing the earth 
        Oh God 
To become one with you.
"Carry them in the palm of Your Hand."
           For The Crew of the Shuttle Columbia.
