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

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

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

  • Natalie says:

    We found out my dad had leukemia March 23, 2013. During his final hours 7 weeks later we played this song over and over since it was one of his favorites and my brother-in-law performed it amazingly at dad’s funeral. For several months after if I heard this song, I would have to pull over and just sob on the side of the road. Now, everytime I hear this song, i still cry but at the same time, I am rejoicing because of the life and memories I had with my dad and the values that he taught us as a family. Thank you!

  • For as long as I can remember, my Dad has been a powerhouse of faith and although I have always been active in my church, I felt like I was just going through the motions. March of 2012 Dad was diagnosed with colon, liver, lung, and eventually brain cancer. I Can Only Imagine took on an entirely different meaning for me. I tried to tell Dad about the song, but he no longer could communicate with anyone, and eventually didn’t know who even his spouse of 50 years was. It didn’t matter if I was listening to the CD or had the radio on, the song played either while I went to visit him or on the way home, and I knew it was his spirit speaking to me.

    After his passing he continued to speak to my family. Whenever we had days we struggled with not having him here on earth, the song plays and reminds us that he is still watching over us through the grace of God.

    My Mom wanted an emotional vacation, and wanted me to come with her. November 2014 I finally agreed to go with her somewhere with her. We came across Mercy Me At Sea. So excited to share this adventure with Mercy Me, my Mom, my Dad’s spirit, and God’s healing power.
