Jim Reeves – It Is No Secret (What God Can Do) lyrics

The chimes of time ring out the news, another day is through.
Someone slipped and fell, was that someone you?
You may have longed for added strength your courage to renew.
Do not be disheartened, I have news for you.
It is no secret what God can do, what he's done for others he'll do for you.
With arms wide open, he'll pardon you, it is no secret what God can do.

There is no night for in his light you'll never walk alone.
Always feel at home, wherever you may roam.
There is no power can conquer you while God is on your side.
Just take him at his promise, don't run away and hide.
It is no secret what God can do, what he's done for others he'll do for you.
With arms wide open he'll pardon you, it is no secret what God can do.

    March 1, 1992 my son was shot in the head and was in the trauma unit at the hospital - the doctors gave us little hope for a successful, if any, recovery - anyone who has ever been told something like this about one of their children knows the fear that gripped me as we waited for word on his condition! We waited all night while he was in surgery, not knowing what we would be told when the doctors finally came out to let us know his condition! The second verse of this song kept going through my head, and I know in my heart that God used the words of the second verse to give me strength, courage and comfort as He assured me that I was not walking alone - Hebrews 13: 5 tells us that "for He hath said "I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee"! Also He knew that as horrible as everything seemed, that I needed to know that there is no "power" that can conquer me while He is on my side - He gave me power over the enemy! This song has had a very special meaning in my life since that time and will always be close to my heart! I never realized that this is one of Jim Reeves songs, so just finding this out makes the song even more special!

    God has revealed his attitude towards us, his children, when he says in jeremiah 29: 11 - "i know the thoughts i have for you; thoughts of good and not of evil - to bring you to an expected (desired end. " his love for us is no secret seeing as how he is willing to let his only begotten son suffer the horrendous pains of the cross to bring us salvation. It is indeed "no secret" what god can do!
