This song is dedicated to the courageous astronauts of Challenger and Columbia.  These brave men and women, heroic pioneers of this age, deserve honor that belongs only to the few.

Their ashes are falling from the sky
onto the ground where I live.
In honor, my eyes are lifted high,
where they gave all they could give.

The heavens pay tribute to the brave.
It's clear and calm, bright and blue.
Challenger and Columbia --
courageous ones are so few.

To stars, to the stars their spirits soar,
where mortal chains are unbound.
Eternity now they will explore;
the One they sought has been found.

Columbia we salute your seven,
Ashes to earth and spirits to heaven.
Astronauts who believed in their quest --
heroes they were -- our finest and noblest.
