I Can Only Imagine

I Can Only ImagineA song by MercyMe. Talks about how we can only imagine what the future will be like, when Christ comes again. Revelations 21:1-4 gives us a tiny glimpse of what it would be like. "Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

In truth, we cannot fathom the awesomeness of His return, and it would be too awesome for words to describe. Even until today, there is debate over how to interpret Revelations. We can only imagine how it will be like. But one thing is certain, He is coming again. Come Lord Jesus quickly come.

you have G#m in the chorus but you dont play it?
other than that, you do a fantastic job

Hey Dave, yeah I just added it in since his other choruses had G#m in them. Guess I was a little lazy... hahah :)

hello Daniel,
Thanks for your effort.God bless you for that. I just want to ask if you could also show the chords in a normal pattern.which many of us does not know how to read in tab.Just the lyrics with cords in the upper section of it. and if u could also illustrate those unfamiliar chords below the songs. the you so much.
More power to you. God bless you.

Hey there, the Lyrics And Chords for all the Christian songs are up on the blog! You can download them from the "Christian Music" page by clicking on the pdf icons beside the titles.
Also, to have an idea on how to play the unfamiliar chords, you can refer to the instructionals :)

Maybe it's different in the UK, but shouldn't that second chord be called E/Eb? (or, more technically E/D#)

Graham Choo said...

Hey, you're right! It's a E/Eb. I tend to get mixed up after writing so many chords out :)
Have changed the chords. Thanks once again!
