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

[Chorus:]
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
Dissolve 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

[Chorus:]
