'Friends' by Michael W. Smith - Sung at President George H.W. Bush's Funeral

Michael W. Smith performed ‘Friends’ at President George H.W. Bush's Funeral. We have all lost loved ones in our lives, but it is such a peaceful feeling knowing that they are in a better place with our Lord in Heaven.


‘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’

People all over the world were touched to hear this song performed at the funeral of President George H.W. Bush. Our 41st president was a man of God and various hymns were also sung at the service.

‘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’

It is never easy to say goodbye to a friend or loved one, but this song is such a perfect reminder that God is always in control. Our loved ones are now in the hands of the Lord and that is such a blessing to know in our hearts. They are never really gone. Just like the lyrics say, they are our friends forever and they will be waiting to greet us in Heaven. This is such a special song and the powerful words will truly speak to your heart in your time of need.
