I Can Do All Things Through Christ
Artist: Gerry Rzeppa
We would not have you ignorant of troubles we have known; (2 Corinthians 1:8-10)
We would not have you think we've not been tried.
But God has worked this death that we might trust in Him alone -
That He might raise us up, and bless us once we've died.

And I have learned in whatsoever state I am (Philippians 4:11-13)
To be content, to serve the Lord the best I can.
To be abased, to be abounding;
To be filled, to suffer need:
I can do all things through Jesus who strengthens me;
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

Now we know that every trial here is something we all share; (1 Corinthians 10:13)
And we know that God is faithful, God is true.
And we know that He will never give us more than we can bear -
But will provide a way, and see us safely through.


Now blessed be God the Father of all mercy and all love; (2 Corinthians 1:3-5)
The God of all the comfort we have known.
Who comforts us in times of need, with comfort from above -
That we might comfort some with comfort we've been shown.
