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 ...

So we can cry with hope
 And say goodbye with hope

We wait with hope
 And we ache with hope
 We hold on with hope
 We let go with hope
