"I Can Only Imagine" as written by Giorgio Tuinfort, Nasri Atweh, Frederic Riesterer, David Guetta, Dwayne Carter, Christopher Maurice Brown and Jacob Luttrell....
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 you face is before me
I can only imagine
I can only imagine

Surrounded by you 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 would 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
I can only imagine hey ya ah

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 hey ya ah

I can only imagine yeah yeah
I can only imagine

I can only imagine ey ey ey
I can only imagine

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

    General CommentFrom the bottom of my heart this song means the world to me. I lost my Grandmother 2/09/2008. She was in the hospital for the entire week before she passed and the only song that i could listen to or that would go through my head is this song... I tear up just thinking this song. I love my Grandmother, and with the grace of God and knowing that she was going to be in his arms, she went so peacefully, as if he took her in His arms right there, and took all of her pain. I miss her so bad it hurts everyday, but knowing that she is in His arms, dancing and worshiping him as she always knew she would, it comforts me! Sometimes I now sit an imagine what it must have been like for her at that moment she met our Lord, and she stood there for the first time in a long time pain free! AWESOME!!! I will miss her, but know that one day I will see her again, in His almighty presence and I CAN ONLY IMAGINE!!

    General Commenti really like the lines

    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 halleluiah?
    Will I be able to speak at all?

    it still makes me wonder. A great song

    General CommentThis song is amazing. It nearly brings me to tears everytime I hear it. It really keeps us in check and our priorities in-line. I mean, my gosh, what will it be like to be standing with Jesus??? It'll be amazing, breath-taking; there are just no words to describe how glorious it will be.

    General Commentumm the chorus is wrong...this one says "or in all of you be still" but that is incorrect, it is "or in awe of You be still"

    i love this song, it is one of the best worship songs out there today, it really helps me get into the presence of God and give Him the praise He deserves.

    General CommentThe youth choir and orchestra at my church often does this song during Communion, with one girl singing and playing her guitar, and it sounds so beautiful, I almost cry right there in church.
