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
Or to my knees will I fall
Will I sing hallelujah
Will I be able to speak at all.
I like the way he contrasts various scenarios, without really knowing the answers. It makes me think about what I would do: I think I might fall on my face and weep for my unbelief and lack of faith.
But there is no way we really know what it will be like to be suddenly in God’s presence.
Scripture gives various pictures of heaven and eternity, mostly in negatives. We know that there will be no night there, no tears, death or sorrow. But what it will actually be like is largely unknown this side of glory. We know that we will be with Jesus, and that is enough.
One thing for sure, eternity with Christ will not be dull.
Where, oh where, did that silly caricature come from, that pictures people sitting on clouds playing harps? This thought puts many people off, as they imagine eternal boredom, and want no part in that.
There are many caricatures that pretend to portray scripture truths. They belittle God’s word, and help unbelievers justify their unbelief.
Bart Millard was 18 years old when his father died from cancer. Ten years later this song was written. Thoughts of untimely death and eternity had filled his mind, and this song was the result. It has become a blessing to countless people since then.
Although we don’t know the details, we do know we can look forward to an eternity with Christ, an eternity that will be glorious, full of light, love, peace, harmony, and usefulness in God’s kingdom. We will see him as he is, and be like him in all his fullness.
I can only imagine what my eyes will see
When your face is before me
I can only imagine.
