'Michael W. Smith'

Michael W. Smith and friends perform a beautiful rendition of his hit song, ‘Friends.' Even though we all have lost loved ones this side of Heaven, we can have peace knowing that we will see them again one day.

‘Can’t believe the hopes He’s granted

Means a chapter in your life is through

But we’ll keep you close as always

It won’t even seem you’ve gone

‘Cause our hearts in big and small ways

Will keep the love that keeps us strong'

‘And friends are friends forever

If the Lord’s the Lord of them

And a friend will not say never

‘Cause the welcome will not end

Though it’s hard to let you go

In the Father’s hands we know

That a lifetime’s not too long

To live as friends'
