Imagine a hand as small as your thumb
That can hold up the earth and light up the sun.
Imagine a face with tiny blue eyes
That saw angels dance at the birth of the skies.
Imagine plump toes on podgy soft feet
That have lead mighty armies down heavenly streets.
Imagine a little button-like nose
That gave breath to life and smelt the first rose.
Imagine a mouth that’s gentle and small
Yet uttered the words of creation’s great call
Imagine a baby with gentle soft breath
Who possesses the strength to overcome death.
Imagine a mother who cuddles and sings
And holds in her arms the King of all Kings.
Imagine the Lord of the Heavenly Hosts
Wrapped up in a manger ‘mid cattle and goats.
Imagine a child who may hunger and cry
But yet had the courage to come here to die.
A baby called Jesus, born in the hay –
Born long ago, but alive to this day.
He came here and lived in the humblest home
To give us the chance to sit near His throne.
Imagine the day when we’re called home on high
To see Him in glory in the great “by and by”.
Imagine “forever” in the warmth of the love
Of that gentle baby who came from above.
