All things are possible to him
All things are possible to him. Charles Wesley* (1707-1788).
From Hymns and Sacred Poems (1749), Book II, where it was entitled ‘All things are possible to him that believeth’ (from Mark 9: 23), one of a sub-section entitled ‘Hymns for those that wait for full Redemption’. It was included in the 1780 Collection of Hymns for the Use of the People called Methodists in the section ‘For Believers Brought to the Birth’, omitting stanzas 3 and 6:
3. I without Sin on Earth shall live,
Ev’n I, the Chief of Sinners, I:
Thy glory, Lord, to Thee I give,
O God of Truth, Thou canst not lie;
What Thou hast said shall surely be:
All Things are possible to me.
