Families Can Be Together Forever

Children’s Songbook of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Brightly

1. I have a fam’ly here on earth.

They are so good to me.

I want to share my life with them through all eternity.

[Chorus]

Fam’lies can be together forever

Through Heav’nly Father’s plan.

I always want to be with my own family,

And the Lord has shown me how I can.

The Lord has shown me how I can.

2. While I am in my early years,

I’ll prepare most carefully,

So I can marry in God’s temple for eternity.

[Chorus]

Fam’lies can be together forever

Through Heav’nly Father’s plan.

I always want to be with my own family,

And the Lord has shown me how I can.

The Lord has shown me how I can.
