Lyrics

What a Lie to Say You Died
Music and Words by Elizabeth Ragsdale

Verse 1
I dreamed you ran ahead of me
Across the finish line,
Leaving me to weep.
An angel spoke as I awoke.
A life has not been lost.
There is no line to cross.

Verse 2
I know you won’t be looking back,
Wishing you had brought
Something heaven lacks.
What you reaped is yours to keep.
All the good you’ve claimed
Remains with you unchanged.

Chorus
What a lie to say you died.
I won’t speak of you as gone.
Side by side we walk with God,
To whom we both belong.

Verse 3
God still has work for you to do,
Worries to release,
Wisdom to pursue.
I am blessed as you progress.
Although you’re out of sight,
You shine with reflected light.

Chorus
