Lyrics

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 2. While I am in my early years,
    I’ll prepare most carefully,
    So I can marry in God’s temple for eternity.
  4. 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.
