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… 
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 … 
We have this hope as an anchor 
‘Cause we believe that everything 
God promised us is true, so… 
We wait with hope 
And we ache with hope 
We hold on with hope 
We let go with hope
