Mercyme – I Can Only Imagine lyrics
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 reminds how my life was dark for so long the Devil trying so hard to get me back on his side and me losing so many important people in my life whom I want to see again along with my main Hero God who saved my life many times and told me he don't make mistakes no matter what I heard from my mom all my life about I was not wanted I am here for a reason and God will show me that reason when he is ready 3 years of being clean and I could not have done it without Jesus on my side: When I slip this songs brings me back to reality and makes me work on myself even harder.

    This song reminds me of my son, who died on feb3, 2014 of acute lymphoblastic leukemia.This song was put to music on his DVD memorial of his life. I know his soul is in heaven with Jesus. I know he is happy with no pain but I still can't imagine life without him. He was only 36 years young. He knew the lord & knew how important every day was. He did not want to die but he did. I know he is happy, but I miss him so much. I can only imagine him waiting on me at the pearly gates & I can hardly wait. This song is so meaningful to me.
    I'm a MS. Mother who is hurting so bad I only can imagine how other Mother's feel losing a child. my name is Linda Patrick, my son was Courtney Patrick.

    A few of my friends have had family die or I have had a few members of my family die. Everyday I hear this song I think of my cousin Cody who died at the age 17. He was a very nice person. I believe he is in heaven right now walking with god and looking down at me. I miss him everyday all the time. He was a really good person and I hated him leaving. I know right now he is in a very good place. This song reminds me of all of the family members, pets, and friends or their family members who are up there. I pray that they are all happy and that they are having a good time up in heaven. This song is a lot to me and makes me so happy because I get to see an image. I hope all of you reading this right now feel the same about the lost loved ones of your friends, pets, family or friends family. This song means so much to me and I'm so grateful for it. I hope this puts some thought to all of the people out there reading my message.

    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.

    For the first time I listened to this song I was in tears imagine what it will be like to stand before my maker, I felt the presence of God upon me that I bursted in tongue. Speaking in an unknown tongue. I can only imagine standing before the creator that was not created. What will I be doing den? Am reached blessed by this song.

    I have been bullied most of my life. Been through drug addiction, alcohol abuse, mental breakdowns, suicidal ideation, hit by cars more than I can count. A rough life. I cannot imagine myself standing before my Creator God and hearing what He has to say about my mistakes I made in my life. I cannot imagine " living a perfect life" without Him. I cannot imagine taking the 39 stikes with a whip and having nails driven through my hands. Carrying the Cross and being treated as Jesus was when He was to be Crucified. This song instantly brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. Thank You Jesus For Giving Your Son Jesus Christ to bear my sins on the cross. I Can Only Imagine where I would be. If My God didn't Love and care for me the way He does. Thank You Jesus!

    I know that because of our sin nature we can't really imagine what it will be like to with our father god, all I know is that if it is anything like I have experienced so far it will be even more awesome than we really can imagine. God is so aweome to me that iknow that no matter what he will take care of me and as long as I know that everything else will fall into place.

    This reminds me about when my mom died and I was 4. She died from a heart condition and I was 4. This song reminds me of her funeral day. Somebody made that video and it has this song in it during her funeral part. This song reminds me of her a lot and it makes me cry. This song means a lot to me and I really do miss her. I can only imagine what type of place she is in.

    This song so much blessed to me. I sing this song in my upper room and I enjoy it. Although I don't have a beautiful voice. But when I sing it. I truly say I can only imagine. That Jesus is so good to me. And None in this universe can do this to me except Jesus Christ my only one savior.

    I first heard this song 7 years ago at an easter drama in kansas. I've moved since then and I still play this song almost everyday because it is so amazing! The truth is I can only imagine meeting jesus and I've thought about it for a long time! This song just gives so many ideas of what can happen in not only the thoughts of the writers but in others of what this day will be like! And people who have heard this song will still go on wondering just because of the powerful words in it!

    I don't have to imagine. I already know. When my 27 year old son foolishly tried to swim across a river with a swift current, he came within about 20 seconds of drowning - right in front of me. When he did get to shore, I could not stand. I fell to my face on the bank and sobbed uncontrollably for about 30 minutes. Jesus spared my son that day. It will be the same when he also spares me on the day he returns.

    I agree with magicguy this is my favorite song and no1 takes the time to stand in 1 place and appreciate all they have instead of what they don't you have to remember there are lots of people out there suffuring and we don't care and we keep asking for more but you have to realize that somthings we ask for means alot more to others. The lord wants you to make ur own decissions but he also wants you to make the right 1 so next time you say you want a new game or phone ect remeber that there are people all over the world that need those things more than you do but mostly we have to care about what were living on we don't live in a trash can we I've on a bueatiful planet that we should all care appreciate becuase 1 day the world might not be what you expect it to be so make sure you think of those things and put others needs before yours.

    This song just proves how in accurate most religions teach their Bible. It is written that we must come to an accurate knowledge of God so we may know what to expect and to be mindful of a hope for resurrection when Jesus comes back to judge the wicked and bless the meek who shall inherit the earth. I guess this artist was never taught that in his spiritual endeavors.
