I Can Only Imagine by MercyMe was released in 2001. Although it was a Christian song, it received significant airplay on country, adult contemporary, and mainstream radio stations as well. Lyrics are included in the video.
The song muses on what it will be like to come face to face with Jesus in heaven. Why don’t we come face to face with Jesus here? Certainly being with Him in heaven is better than being with Him here (Philippians 1:21), but being with Him here offers all the glories of which the song’s lyrics describe. Why are so many people putting those glories off?
Look unto Jesus even now, and let the light of His eyes fill your soul with peace and joy (Isaiah 45:22).
