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. 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!

I can only imagine, when that day comes, when I find myself standing in the Son!
I can only imagine, when all I will do, is forever, forever worship You!
I can only imagine! 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! Yeah! I can only imagine!

I can only imagine! Yeah! I can only imagine!! Only imagine!!!
I can only imagine.

I can only imagine, when all I do is forever, forever worship You!
I can only imagine."

    The glory of God is so great, that 'we' can only imagine how great it can be. We are bound to a misunderstaning because of our flesh.

    yes, because of our sin nature we cannot understand what the afterlife will be like. Sometimes its hard to even imagine what The Lord will be like in heaven.

    It means to stand in God's grace right now every moment. That moment when you realize you are on the narrow path. You reach a spiritual awakening the true awakening when you know Jesus is the way to the Father. Your life changes for the best and the mystery of God starts being revealed. The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. God bless.

    This song strikes right in the very core of my heart. It makes me feel closer to god every time i hear it. This is one of the best written songs i have ever heard. We as humans have a certain kind of image of god in our heads but in reality we have no idea what god looks like. We can only imagine. We do; however, know that he is in heaven and one day we will meet him face to face.
