Journey's Done

 

©1994 by Steve Macdonald


It's a long, long road
To leave our planet's hold.
Destined to reach our goal

Refrain
Walk step by step
Mile by dusty mile
'Till the stars we've won
Journey's done.

As we look to our past
It took sweat and grit to last.
Da Vinci knew it could be done

Refrain

Brothers Montgolfier
Were first to find a way
Balloons rising with the new day.

Refrain

December 1903
The Wrights learned to fly free
And gave the gift to you and me.

Refrain

Vostok, Mercury
Soyuz, Gemini-
Orbit the skies and see

Refrain

You know the road is long and hard
With pitfalls in the way.
And for some the burden is heavy and long
And high is the price they paid.

But for all those we've lost
And for all those we've won
We'll remember them long
We'll remember out past our Sun.

Apollo and Moon-land
Mir, Ariane
Columbia glides in to land

Refrain

Throughout history
We've strived to rise and see
Achieve orbit- then go free!

Refrain (2x)
