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."

    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.

    Now that I'm committed to serving my life to god, This song hits home more and more everytime I hear it. It really tells me that what I feel is real. I can't wait to see Jesus and God to thank them for what they've done for me. What a glorious day that will be.

    To behold the glory of my lord will be awesome! I have been through so much in my life. But, to be in the presence of jesus would be the beginning of understanding of why I have struggled for so long. I can't wait to see him face to face.

    To meet face to face with my god, when this earthly vessal has finally worn itself out and I can go to be with him, the one who had the stripes put on his flesh, who saved me from my sins, the one who loved me enough to give his mortal life, for someone as inadaquete as me. Amen!
