****************************************************************

This is not at all how

We thought it was supposed to be

We had so many plans for you

We had so many dreams

And now you've gone away

And left us with the memories of your smile

And nothing we can say

And nothing we can do

Can take away the pain

The pain of losing you, but...

[Chorus]

 

We can cry with hope

We can say goodbye with hope

'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no

And we can grieve with hope

'Cause we believe with hope

(There's a place by God's grace)

There's a place where we'll see your face again

We'll see your face again

 

And never have I known

Anything so hard to understand

And never have I questioned more

The wisdom of God's plan

But through the cloud of tears

I see the Father's smile and say 'well done'

And I imagine you

Where you wanted most to be

Seeing all your dreams come true

'Cause now you're home

And now you're free, and...

[Chorus]

 

We have this hope as an anchor

'Cause we believe that everything

God promised us is true, so...

[Chorus]

 

We wait with hope

And we ache with hope

We hold on with hope

We let go with hope

- "With Hope," Steven Curtis Chapman
