what can i say to the God who makes my heart beat?
Who made up a plan just for me
long, long ago?
and what must i do to give You my whole heart and soul?
it’s for You i want You to know
that i am Your child

and what, what could we do – if i gave all of me to You?
and where, where would we go – if i really learned to follow?

You say, “imagine.”
You say, “follow.”
You say, “open your life to Me; you’ll see.”
You say, “imagine.”

what can i say to the God who makes my heart beat?
Who made up a plan just for me
long, long ago?
oh, what must i do – to give You my whole heart and soul?
it’s for You i want You to know
that i am Your child

and what, what will we do – as i give all of me to You?
and where, where will we go – when i give You my life and let go?

ah…You say, “Imagine.” yeah!
You say, “follow.”
You say, “trust your whole life to Me; you’ll see.”
You say, “imagine. I have something for you.”
You say, “follow. Watch and see what we’ll do!
You have given your life to Me; watch and you’ll see!”…

You say, “Imagine.”
…i will…

"You Say, 'Imagine'" is a soaring, powerful song about responding to the call of God to receive his grace and love and to respond with obedience, sacrifice, and hope. The second chorus [in particular] is especially powerful as it swells up and takes off. Based on Ephesians 3:20 and inspired by a capital campaign at Rob's church, this song is designed to get the listener to "imagine" where a sold-out life [to the Lordship of Christ] might go.

MUSICAL STYLE/SOUND: World music, big, ambient sound. Lots of keyboards and heavy drums. More "adult contemporary" than the rest of the CD. Definitely a "listening" song, but people have done dances to it, ice skated to it, and even done American Sign Language to it.

IF YOU'RE TEACHING:
- Obedience
- The Lordship of Jesus Christ
- God is our Creator; we are not our own [we must surrender to His will for our lives]
- God has a plan for you [though it may not always seem "good" - it is!]
- Being a child of God
- Surrender to God
- [biblical] Imagination and wonder :D

KEY LYRIC: "What will we do – as i give all of me to You? And where, where will we go – when i give You my life and let go? You say, “Imagine.” yeah! You say, “follow.” You say, “trust your whole life to Me; you’ll see. You’ll see, yeah!” You say, “imagine. I have something for you.”
You say, “follow. Watch and see what we’ll do! You have given your life to Me; watch and you’ll see!..."

LITTLE KNOWN FACT: "You Say, 'Imagine'" has been used by God to inspire many people. People have started businesses, drawn closer to God in regular, consistent prayer, and even increased their giving to their local churches and parachurch ministries because they sensed God challenging them with this song.
