"My God Can Do Anything" Old Song

Post by Jadeswan » Tue Feb 16, 2010 3:28 pm

My brother and I sang this song in a little old country church in the '80's. I think someone just copied it off and gave it to my mom. The music has kind of a gospel sound. The title might be "My God Can Do Anything" but it's possible it could be something else. I'd love to find sheet music for it. Even the name of the songwriter would be a help. Here are some of the lyrics as I remember them.

Chorus:
My God can do anything, anything, anything;
My God can do anything.
He understands each little heartache.
He even knows the pain you bear
And He will never be too busy
To give an answer to your prayer.

He made the fish that swim the ocean.
He made the sparkling waterfall.
He never fails in His devotion
To His children when they call.

There were one or two other verses but I can't remember them.

Thank you in advance! :)

I don't know if this helps you or not but I found that the STATESMEN QUARTET made an LP in 1968 called Sing Brother Sing that has this song, My God Can Do Anything on it. I pray that this helps you in the start for your search for this song. I remember hearing it at church when I was a child and would also love to have all the verses. God Bless!

My God Can Do Anything
Chorus:
(Choir) My God can do anything,
My God can do anything,
He's got the power,
He's got the power.
He's got the power,
He's got the power,
My God can do anything,
My God can do anything


Verse:
(Soloist) He healed the sick and He raised the dead,
5000 hungry souls He fed,
He can make a way out of no way,
And turn your darkness into day,
My God can do anything,
My God can do anything


Chorus (Choir)


Verse:
(Soloist) It makes no difference what's the problem,
My God is able, He's able to solve 'em,
There is no secret to what God can do,
What he's done for others, He will do it for you,
My God can do anything,
My God can do anything


Chorus (Choir)


Instrumental


Vamp:
(Choir) God's got the power,
Yes, he's got the power,
God's got the power,
Yes, he's got the power,
God's got the power,
Yes he's got the power, etc.,

My God can do anything,
My God can do anything, etc.

Dont know if this is it.
GOD BLESS

The one that I'm looking for is an old one and has a chorus that goes something like this:
My God can do anything, anything, anything, my God can do anything.
He made this world and all it's goodness, and the joy each day will bring,
my God can do anything.
Not sure if the words are just like that but it's pretty close.
Thank you and God bless!

Msbubry, thank you for the information. That is a good lead. :)

Godskids, thanks for the lyrics. That isn't the song I'm looking for but it's a good one.

Guest, I believe we are looking for the same song.

My grandma found an old paper with the lyrics handwritten on it so now I have the lyrics in full. I'm posting them for anyone else who has been looking for them and also in case anyone has any further information on who wrote or sang the song or anywhere I might find the music.

My God controls the wind and weather.
He sends the sunshine and the rain.
He holds this universe together.
With love He rules His great domain.
He understands each little heartache.
He even knows the pain we bear
And He will never be too busy
To give an answer to your prayer.

He made the fish that swim the ocean.
He gave the nightingale its song.
He gave a mother her devotion
To teach her children right from wrong.
He gave fragrance to the flowers.
He made the sparkling waterfall.
He formed the heavens by His power.
The mighty God has made it all.

Chorus:
My God can do anything, anything, anything;
My God can do anything.
He made this earth in all its fullness
And all that time shall bring.
My God can do anything.

Msbubrry, your lead proved to be the right one. Thank you so much for the lead and your prayers! The song "My God Can Do Anything" as sung by the Statesmen Quartet is the same as the one I was looking for. It was written by Vep Ellis and is available from Lillenas Publishing in the book It's Camp Meeting Time...In the Choir Loft.

Thank you so very much Jadeswan and your very welcome. I think that that's the one.
I was also the guest but I forgot to log in before I placed the post.
I didn't think I had the words just right but I knew it was something like that.
Again, Thank you so very much for finding the words to this beautiful song for it sure brings back
lots of great memories from my childhood church revival days.
May God bless you as only he can.

I didn't know if you were just making a statement or if you were looking for that song. In any case, here is what I had for that song and I pray that it will help someone. God Bless!

It Is No Secret

Verse:1
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, for I have news for you.

Chorus:
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.

Verse: 2
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,
take him at his promise don't run away and hide.
