Contemporary Christian music legend Michael W. Smith performed at the funeral of former President George H.W. Bush on Wednesday. Smith whose career spans decades is a pioneer in Christian music and a friend of the Bush family for decades. He performed his song “Friends” which emphasizes trust in God’s will for your life even when you don’t understand it. The song has often been used at funerals. Smith released the song which he co-wrote with his wife in 1987. The song was written for a friend who was moving away to serve in ministry.

Smith recalled seeing President Bush for the last time a mere three months before he passed away.

“As we were leaving, we just gave him a hug and said ‘We love you. We love you, so good to see you,” Smith told CBN News. “And about the time we were leaving, he put his finger in the air and had that sparkle in his eyes and said: ‘Friends are friends forever.’ Deb and I walked out of there thinking this might be the last time that we see him.”
