Raggedy Rocky

Satellites probably because Space Shuttle Discovery launched about an hour ago. Rocky Mountain High because who doesn't get happy when they hear that song?
And Rita certainly because of our heavy week.*

*Rita, by Bebo Norman

Lay down softly in our sorrow
Lay down sister to die
And cover over, my sweet Father
Cover over her eyes

Your broken body, it cannot weather
The years your youth still longs to spend
So go down graceful, sleep with the angels
And wake up whole again

'Cause it was not your time
That's a useless line
A fallen world, it took your life
But the God that sometimes can't be found
Will wrap himself around you,
So lay down, sister, lay down

Slower passing are the hours
To tell this tale it takes its time
But the finest moment, no man can measure
Is to look your Saviour in the eyes

So take her tender to Your table
Take her from this killing floor
To taste the water that is forever
Let her be thirsty no more

Cause tt was not her time
That's a useless line
A fallen world, it took her life
But the God that sometimes can't be found
Will wrap himself around you,
So lay down, sister, lay down

And the God that sometimes can't be found
Will wrap himself around you,
So lay down, Rita, lay down
