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 had eight complex stanzas:
All Things are possible to Him, That can in Jesu’s Name believe:Lord, I no more thy Truth blaspheme, Thy Truth I lovingly receive;I can, I do believe in Thee,All Things are possible to me.
The most Impossible of all, Is, that I e’er from Sin should cease;Yet shall it be: I know, it shall: Jesus, look to thy Faithfulness!If Nothing is too hard for Thee,All Things are possible to me.
