I Can Only Imagine

 | January 28, 2008 8:44 AM

Recently I wrote a tongue in cheek post, My First Conversation with Ji Seon in Heaven, about what it would be like in heaven.

MercyMe has a song wondering about what heaven will be like called “I Can Only Imagine”. There’s a great article about the origins of this song at Christianity Today entitled Story Behind The Song: MercyMe’s “I Can Only Imagine”.

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

I can only imagine when that day comes
And 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

Chorus

I can only imagine
When all I will do
Is forever, forever worship you
