Track Name: Light in the Sky
Your love changed the life of every person you met
God gave you beauty to cast a wide net
Yours brought us in before your sun set
To show us just how good life could get

Friends, if you ever know loss like the loss that I know
Its sorrow will follow wherever you go
Look to the light that shines bright in the sky
Let it dry the tears from your eyes

When I go up to be with them then
I hope they'll make room and let my light shine in
Until that day comes, let them know they are missed
Their names were in bold at the top of God's list

All the beauty that's been made will one day be claimed
One million lakes will one day be drained
Until that day comes, I'll keep singing your names
I'll go on living, though life's not the same
