Watkins Brightly 80–96 Imagemusic, Families Can Be Together Forever 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. 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.
