imagine

imagine there's no heaven,
it's easy if you try,
no hell below us,
above us only sky,
imagine all the people,
living for today

imagine there's no countries,
it isn't hard to do,
nothing to kill or die for,
and no religion too
imagine all the people,
living life in peace,

you may say i'm a dreamer,
but i'm not the only one,
i hope someday you'll join us,
and the world will be as one

imagine no possessions,
i wonder if you can,
no need for greed or hunger,
a brotherhood of man
imagine all the people,
sharing all the world,

you may say i'm a dreamer,
but i'm not the only one,
i hope someday you'll join us,
and the world will live as one

  1. "We must avoid songs that teach false doctrine. Let us remember the kind of songs the Lord likes, songs with the Gospel in them.....The more beautiful the music by which false doctrine is sung, the more dangerous it becomes, I appeal to all Latter-day Saints, and especially to our choirs, never to sing the words of a song, no matter how beautiful and inspiring the music may be, where the teachings are not in perfect accord with the truths of the gospel...." Teachings of Presidents of the Church Heber J. Grant pg. 167

  2. I think by false doctrines, anonymous quite possibly could be reffering to, "imagine there's no heaven,
    it's easy if you try,no hell below us,above us only sky,imagine all the people, living for today".
    I've heard many debates on this song, quite silly really, I like the song, plus I like the beatles.
