       ŌHOW WILL IT BEĶ

                                                                                                                                  

 

 

 

VERSE 1

 

 

HOW WOULD IT BE IF THERE WAS NO TEMPTATION, AND EVERY NATION AND ALL MEN DID HATE SIN

 

WHAT IF THERE WAS WORLD PEACE AND MONEY FOR WAR WAS SPENT SATISFYING ALL THE NEEDS OF THE LESS FORTUNATE

 

HOW MANY SINGERS AND ACTORS WOULD GO BACK TO USING THEIR GIFT FOR GOD IF MONEY WAS NOT A FACTOR

 

WHY SOME LABORERS GET NO THANKS WHEN BUSINESS GROW WHILE THE C.E.O. AND EXECTS ARE MAKING ALL THE DOUGH

 

WHY POLITICAL PARTIES CLAIM THEY SEEK CHANGE, BUT CONSTANTLY FIGHT AND BICKER MORE THAN STREET GANGS

 

HOW WOULD IT BE IF MAN DIDNÕT CARE ABOUT RACE AND NO PREJUDICE DID EXIST FROM THE COLOR OF YOUR FACE

 

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF EVERYBODY PRAYED DAILY NO SLACKING, INSTEAD OF ALWAYS WAITING FOR SOMETHING BAD TO HAPPEN

 

WHAT IF THERE WAS NO EVIL AND GOD HEALED ALL THE PEOPLE, EVERYONE HAD A SANE MIND AND NOONE WAS FEEBLE

 

 

 

 

CHORUS 1

 

 

HOW WILL IT BE IN THAT PLACE WHERE EVIL IS ERASED

 

HOW WILL IT BE IN THAT SPACE, A SMILE ON EVERY FACE

 

HOW WILL IT BE IN THAT STATE WHERE THEREÕS NO PAIN, WHERE SIN CANNOT REMAIN, AND CHRIST WILL ALWAYS REIGN

 

HOW WILL IT BE IN THAT LAND WHERE BLESSINGS ALWAYS FLOW

 

HOW WILL IT BE, A LIFE SPAND WHERE LOVE IS ALL WE KNOW

 

HOW WILL IT BEÉ. (CUT SCRATCH) I CAN ONLY IMAGINE

 

 

VERSE 2

 

 

HOW MANY NOBLE PEOPLE WOULD BE IN OUR MIDST IF CHILD ABDUCTION AND ABORTION DIDNÕT EXIST

 

HOW MANY SNOBBY PEOPLE WOULD CHANGE THEIR VIEWS OF OTHERS THEY JUDGE IF THEY COULD JUST WALK IN THEIR SHOES

 

HOW MANY WOULD GET SAVED ON HIGHER SCALES IF RAPPERS UPLIFTED GOD AND NOT BRAGGED ABOUT THEMSELVES

 

HOW MANY KIDS WOULDNÕT HAVE TO PAY THE PRICE OF LIVING IN SIN IF THEY WOULD TAKE THEIR PARENTS ADVICE

 

WHY IS IT HARD FOR SOME WHO WISH BUT NEVER TRY TO HAVE A BETTER BOND WITH THEIR LOVED ONES BEFORE THEY DIE

 

THINK ABOUT ALL THE PEOPLE WE COULD REACH IF WE LIVED LIKE CHRIST WOULD TEACH AND WE PRACTICE WHAT WE PREACH

 

HOW WILL IT BE IN A WORLD FREE FROM TERRORISTS, WITH NO EXTREMISTS OR SUCH THINGS AS A WANTED LIST

 

HOW MANY UNRULY KIDS WERE ABLE TO FIND THEIR WAY INTO GANG LIFE CAUSE THEIR PARENTS GAVE THEM NO TIME OF DAY

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

VERSE 3

 

 

HOW WOULD IT BE WITH NO WAR, WEAPONS, OR BOMBS, NO SOLDIERS IN HARMS WAY LEAVING WIVES AS SINGLE MOMS

 

WHY SOME FOLKS FIND IT HARD TO GIVE SOMEONE ELSE A BREAK CAUSE THEY CANÕT TAKE THE FACT SOMEONE MIGHT BE AS GREAT

 

HOW MANY BROKEN UP FAMILIES HAVE WE HEARD OF FROM THE RESULT OF SUICIDES, DRUGS, AND MURDER

 

WHY ARE SOME CHRISTIAN ARTISTS BECOMING MORE BLUNT, AND DUE TO SIZE THEY WONÕT MINISTER AT A STORE FRONT

 

WHAT IF THERE WAS NO PEER PRESSURE TO MAKE KIDS UPTIGHT, AND THEY WERE NO LONGER SCARED TO STAND FOR WHAT WAS RIGHT

 

HOW MANY GOOD DAYS WEÕD HAVE IF WE MADE A DECISION TO KEEP A POSITIVE OUTLOOK AND DISPOSITION

 

WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY NEVER CHANGED THE RULES AND NEVER REFUSED TO KEEP GOD IN THE SCHOOLS

 

HOW WOULD IT BE IN A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE WHERE NOONE HELA A GRUDGE AND ITÕS EASY TO FORGIVE

 

 

CHORUS

 

 

SCRATCH OUTRO

 

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE (REPEAT)
