Words and Music by Bart Millard


I can only imagine WHAT it will be like,
When I walk by Your side.
I can only imagine what my eyes will see,
When Your face is before me:
I can only imagine.

Surrounded by Your glory,
What will my heart feel?
Will I dance for you Jesus?
Or in awe of You be still?
Will I stand in Your presence?
Or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing Hallelujah?
Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine.

I can only imagine when that day comes,
And I find myself standing in the Son.
I can only imagine when all I WOULD do,
Is forever, forever worship You.
I can only imagine.

Surrounded by Your glory,
What will my heart feel?
Will I dance for you Jesus?
Or in awe of You be still?
Will I stand in Your presence?
Or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing Hallelujah?
Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine.
Yeah, I can only imagine.

Surrounded by Your glory,
What will my heart feel?
Will I dance for you Jesus?
Or in awe of You be still?
Will I stand in Your presence?
Or to my knees will I fall?
Will I sing Hallelujah?
Will I be able to speak at all?
I can only imagine. (Can you imagine?)
I can only imagine.

I can only imagine. (Can you imagine?)
I can only imagine. (I can imagine.)

I can only imagine.
I can only imagine.

    This song brings me to tears. Both tears of sorrow and tears of joy. Both the music and the lyrics help express my gratitude for the blessings in my life and my love for the lord. It is a beautiful song that helps me sing what my heart feels. Words deep in my heart that the lord already knows but i am unable to clearly express. A beautifully moving song about what i hope and pray i will some day be blessed to know... What i can now, only imagine.

    It means to me that one day, very soon, our imagination will become reality when we see our lord and saviour jesus, face to face. In that day, we will know true reality. Hasten the day lord!
