Imagine me (Kirk Franklin)

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his. We know that our old self was crucified with him in order that the body of sin might be brought to nothing, so that we would no longer be enslaved to sin. For one who has died has been set free from sin. Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. We know that Christ, being raised from the dead, will never die again; death no longer has dominion over him. For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus. Romans 6:5-11

“Imagine me
Loving what I see when the mirror looks at me ’cause I
I imagine me
In a place of no insecurities
And I’m finally happy ’cause
I imagine me

Letting go of all of the ones who hurt me
‘Cause they never did deserve me
Can you imagine me?
Saying “No” to thoughts that try to control me
Remembering all you told me
Lord, can you imagine me?

Over what my mama said
And healed from what my daddy did
I wanna live and not read that page again

Imagine me being free, trusting you totally
Finally I can…
Imagine me
I admit it was hard to see
You being in love with someone like me
But finally I can…
Imagine me

(Imagine me) Being strong
And not letting people break me down
You won’t get that joy this time around (No no)
Can you imagine me?
In a world (in a world) where nobody has to live afraid
Because of your love fear’s gone away
Can you imagine me?

Letting go of my past
And glad I have another chance
And my heart will dance
‘Cause I don’t have to read that page again

(Imagine me)
Imagine me, me being free, trusting you totally
Finally I can…
Imagine me
(I admit Jesus) I admit it was hard to see
You being in love with someone like me (like me)
Finally I can…
Imagine me

(I imagine me)
Imagine me (being free) being free, trusting you totally (totally)
Finally I can…
Imagine me
(I’ll be honest with you)
I admit it was hard to see (it was hard)
You being in love with someone like me (yeah)
But finally I can…
Imagine me

[Spoken:]
This song is dedicated to people like me.
Those that struggle with insecurities, acceptance and even self-esteem.
You’ve never felt good enough, you’ve never felt pretty enough
But imagine God whispering in your ear letting you know that everything that has happened is now…

…gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
(It’s all gone, every sadness)
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
(Every mistake, every failure, it’s all gone)
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
(Depression, gone, bad faith, it’s gone)
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
(Low self-esteem, Hallelujah, it’s gone, it’s all gone)
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
(It’s gone, all my scars, all my pain)
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
(It’s in the past, it’s yesterday, it’s all gone, ah)
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
(I can’t believe it’s gone)
(Gone, what you mother did, what your father did, Hallelujah)
Gone, gone, it’s gone, all gone
(It’s gone)”
