"When I Am Gone" as written by David Allen Clark, Mark R. Harris and Donald A. Koch....
Life is a vapor, so quickly fading
It only lasts a season then it'’s gone
And I have chosen to live each moment
Depending on a strength beyond my own

For even through my weakness
I am learning to believe
That through my silent faith
Somebody will see

When I am gone what will they say
When I am gone
Will I leave behind a witness
That will carry on

When all the works and deeds that I have done
Quickly fade into the past
Lord, let Your fire burn steadfast
When I am gone

I look around me and see the darkness
Within a world where few are set apart
And then I wonder, have I been faithful
To share the hope that lives within my heart

For when I tell another
What the Savior’'s love can do
They just might be the one
To reach out to You

When I am gone what will they say
When I am gone
Will I leave behind a witness
That will carry on

When all the works and deeds that I have done
Quickly fade into the past
Lord, let Your fire burn steadfast
When I am gone

When I am gone what will they say
When I am gone
Will I leave behind a witness
That will carry on

When all the works and deeds that I have done
Fade into the past
Lord, let Your fire burn steadfast
When I am gone
