Imagine a World [Song]

LYRICS

If I had the eyes of God, what would I see?
A world at peace where justice reigns,
a world in harmony?
Or would those eyes see violence
a broken world in pain?
People turning away from the love of God?
Imagine a world without the love of God.

If I had the mind of God, then I would realize
why empty, yearning, suffering hearts
cannot be satisfied
Why tears seem never ending,
why loneliness remains.
Why do we turn away from the love of God?
Imagine a world without the love of God.

If I had the hands of God
I know what I would do
I’d sift the evil from the just,
remould, rebuild, renew.
But his ways are not my ways,
his thoughts are not my thoughts
He gave his hands to bless and heal
and shared our broken dreams
But the world with foolish wisdom, took those hands
and nailed them to a cross

I see through the eyes of God,
what do I see?
A world afraid to hope again,
but yearning to be free
From chains of stark injustice,
still blinded to the key
If only we’d all see through the eyes of God
We’d see we live in a world that needs
the love of God
Can you imagine a world without the love of God?
