All Things Are Possible To Him

Charles Wesley
(1707-1788)

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.1

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.2

Though earth and hell the word gainsay,
The word of God can never fail:
The Lamb shall take my sins away—
’Tis certain though impossible!
The thing impossible shall be:
All things are possible to me.

When Thou the work of faith hast wrought,
I here shall in Thine image shine,
Nor sin in deed or word or thought.
Let men exclaim, and fiends repine;
They cannot break the firm decree:
All things are possible to me.

The unchangeable decree is past,
The sure, predestinating word
That I, who on my Lord am cast,
I shall be like my sinless Lord;
’Twas fixed from all eternity:
All things are possible to me.

Thy mouth, O Lord, hath spoke, hath sworn
That I shall serve Thee without fear,
Shall find the pearl which others spurn,
Holy, and pure, and perfect here.
The servant as his Lord shall be:
All things are possible to me.

All things are possible to God,
To Christ the power of God in man,
To me, when I am all renewed,
When I in Christ am born again,
And witness, from all sin set free:
All things are possible to me!
