Vision 2020: Music with Vision
God can use us for His glory despite our own personal limitations. His vision for us is so much bigger than the vision we often have for ourselves. Billy Graham’s Crusades sometimes featured music written by Eugene Clark, who was partially blind and severely crippled with arthritis.
Our archives feature this month is special Crusade souvenir edition sheet music from 1966 for the song, “Nothing is Impossible,” written by Eugene Clark. On the back are pictures of Billy Graham, Cliff Barrows, George Beverly Shea, and Tedd Smith.
Below are the words to the song:
I read in the Bible the promise of God,
That nothing for Him is too hard.
Impossible things He had promised to do
If we faithfully trust in His Word.
The Word of the Lord is an anchor secure
When winds of uncertainty blow;
Though man in his weakness may falter and fail,
His word will not fail us we know.
“All things are possible,” this is His Word,
Receive it, ‘tis written for you.
Believe in His promises; God cannot fail;
For what He has said He will do.
Creator of all things, with infinite pow’r,
He spoke—they appeared by His mouth,
Impossible things are not known unto Him,
He made us, He ruleth the earth.
Nothing is impossible when you put your trust in God;
Nothing is impossible when you’re trusting in His Word.
Hearken to the voice of God to thee: “Is there anything too hard for Me?
Then put your trust in God alone and rest upon His Word;
For ev’rything, oh ev’rything, yes ev’rything is possible with God!”
