If you could see me now is a popular funeral song.

The song is often erroneously credited to Don Moen.  However, the song was written by Kim Noblitt.

Kim Noblitt was a member of the music group Truth in the late 1970s through the 1980s.

Kim worked with Roger Breland, the founder and director of Truth.

Roger Breland lost his brother-in-law, Jeff Johnson, who loved to hear Kim Noblitt sing.

According to Jeremy Breland, Kim Noblitt wrote “If You Could See Me Now” for Jeff and his family after Jeff passed.  The song was performed for the first time at Jeff’s funeral.

The song is told from the viewpoint of the loved one who has passed away.  The song shares that although we miss the person, if we could see them now we would not want him/her to return.

The song has ministered to many who have lost loved ones and serves as a reminder of what our loved ones are doing now.
