Pray for Astronauts Hurley and Behnken During Wednesday Launch
The Science Channel will be covering the first manned launch from Cape Canaveral of American Astronauts, Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken, on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket headed to dock with the International Space Station Wednesday, May 27th. It will be the first time in over nine years that American Astronauts will be launched into space from American soil on an American made rocket. Where to Watch
BLESS THOU THE ASTRONAUTS
(The Astronauts Hymn)
Bless Thou the astronauts who face
the vast immensities of space:
And may they know, in air, on land,
Thou holdest them within Thy hand.
O may the small step each doth take
aid others giant leaps to make.
How excellent in all the Earth
Thy Name, O God, Who gave it birth;
When first upon the Moon we trod,
How excellent Thy Name, O God.
The heavens Thy glory doth declare:
Where-e’er we are, Lo! Thou art there.
We still upon Thy laws depend
as our dominions doth extend,
While from the nations triumph rings
when we mount up with eagle’s wings.
Grant on each planet far and near
to all Thy glory may appear.
Give all then for all time to be
Thy blessing of tranquility,
As galaxies and quasars share
the knowledge that our God is there!
May future aeons call to mind,
“We came in peace for all mankind.”
(Sung to the tune of “The Navy Hymn”)
