God Put That Rainbow In The Sky
(Ruth 1 :14, 2 Samuel 1:26)

God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the -
Oh God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky

It looked like the sun wasn't gonna - shine no more
Children God, He put a rainbow in the sky
Well well well

God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the -
Oh God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky

As Ruth fell – for Naomi – as rain falls through light
God put a rainbow in the sky
The age – was as dark – as their love – was bright
God put a rainbow in the sky

God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the -
Oh God put a rainbow in the sky
A rainbow in the sky

I grieve, said David, when Jonathan did die
God put a rainbow in the sky
His love, had more wonder, than a woman's sigh
God put a rainbow in the sky

Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if anything but death separates you and me." (Ruth 1:16-17 NIV)

"And Jonathan had David reaffirm his oath out of love for him, because he loved him as he loved himself." (1 Samuel 20:16-18)

"After the boy had gone, David got up from the south side of the stone and bowed down before Jonathan three times, with his face to the ground. Then they kissed each other and wept together—but David wept the most." (1 Samuel 20:40-42)

[After Jonathan's death, David said,] "I am distressed for thee, my brother Jonathan: very pleasant hast thou been unto me: thy love to me was wonderful, passing the love of women." (2 Samuel 1:26)
