Reimagine

Now that we’ve spent the last 50 years imagining John Lennon’s world–and ending up in a radicalized version of the same world in which he imagined it–I suppose it’s time to try something new.

Imagine there’s a heaven
It’s not easy when you try 
There’s hell all around us
Above us only night
Imagine all the people 
Living for a change

Imagine there’s a kingdom  
It may be hard to do
Something real to die for  
And love our enemies, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You

You may say I’m a dreamer 
But our King is the only one 
I hope someday He’ll join us
And the world will be as one 

Imagine our possessions
I wonder if you can
Shared for need and hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing God’s good world
You

You may say I’m a dreamer 
But Christ is the only one 
I hope someday He’ll join us
And the world will be as one
