MercyMe Performs Quarantine Version Of ‘I Can Only Imagine’

MercyMe performs a stunning quarantine version of ‘I Can Only Imagine.’

The group sings this song while practicing isolation and social distancing.

‘I Can Only Imagine’ is a song by Christian band MercyMe. It was written and composed by lead singer Bart Millard, and originally recorded for the band’s 1999 independent album The Worship Project.

I can only imagine
What it will be like
When I walk by your side
I can only imagine
What my eyes would see
When your face is before me
I can only imagine
I can only imagine, yeah

Millard wrote the song based on his thoughts about his father’s death. The song speaks about how it would be like to be in front of God in heaven and see God to face.

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
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

This song is so relevant during these times when people are fearful of the virus and with death all around us. We have a beautiful hope that one day we will be with our savior Jesus Christ forever and ever and see Him face to face.
