Gone But Not Forgotten

from Black & White by DJ Triple Threat



Gone But Not Forgotten

You see
To be absent from the body
Is to be present with Christ
And to live is Christ
And to die is gain
And there’s also peace for
The righteous in death
But the living don’t understand
So many have gone one
But they’re not forgotten
Know what I’m saying
Yeah, uh, yo

Verse 1:

Absent from the body
But present with Christ
Still got memories
Of me and you in life
I know there’s peace
For the righteous in death
But you left too quick
Why’d you have to jet
I mourned til the morn
And I mourned through the night
I miss your smile, your style, your zeal for life
But joy comes in the morn
After weeping through the night
But it was unexpected
When you make your exit
Life shouldn’t be taken for granted
In Christ we should be
Rooted and planted
I know you died with the Father’s love
And now you’re living with the Father above
But I wish you was here
But you way up there
Yet you still right here
So no more sorrowful tears
One day I will see you again
I will testify in life that you was more than a friend


You may have left
But you’re not forgotten
We may have wept
But you’re not forgotten
Life is different
But you’re not forgotten
We will see you again
So you’re not forgotten

Verse 2:

I don’t know why
He had taken you up
And I don’t know why
Instead, why He didn’t take me up
But I know i
Will see you again
When He calls me up
‘Til then, I won’t be sad
Still ringing praises up
Still breathing, so I must go on
Here for a reason, God where I’m weak
You make me strong
Easier said than done, I know
It’s hard
We can all agree
Dealing with death is hard
‘Cause you never stop missing the The one’s you love
It’s like a part of you is missing
Don’t know where to direct that love
Feelin’ that void
Need to fill it with God’s love
A day turns into a month
A month ‘til a year
God heals all wounds in perfect time
Through the shedding of tears
Death we don’t understand
It perplexes man
There’s more beyond this life
If you put your hands in God’s hands


Verse 3:

The funeral’s done past
Thinking on the good times
Blanking on the bad
You wanna lighten the mood,
So you sit back and laugh
Trying not to feel sad
‘Cause now memories is all we have
Some have lost their mom or their dad
A brother, a sister, a friend we had
Death is a necessary part of life
It sucks, we don’t understand why
It’s the end of life
But for those of us Christ
It just begins
Absent from the body
But not forgotten
In Heaven it’s a party
So we need to celebrate life
It’s a homegoing service
It’ll be alright
‘Cause if you saved
And if they saved
You will meet again
Until then it’s okay to cry
To smile with tears in your eyes
So as we continue on this journey
Let Christ be our goal at the end of this journey



Your memory still lives on
Your memory still lives on
Hey! Hey! (3x)
Your memory still lives on
On until the break of dawn
Hey! Hey!
