HE DID -- HE CAN -- HE WILL

HE DID -- HE CAN -- HE WILL

 

The God that stopped the sun on high,

 

and sent the manna from the sky,

 

laid flat the walls of Jericho,

 

and put to flight old Israel's foe.

 

Why can't He answer prayer today,

 

and drive each stormy cloud away?

 

Who turned the water into wine,

 

and healed a helpless cripple's spine

 

commanded tempests, "Peace be still."

 

and hungry multitudes did fill,

 

His power is just the same today.

 

So why not labour, watch and pray?

 

He conquered in the Lion's den,

 

brought Lazarus back to life again.

 

He heard Elijah's cry for rain,

 

and freed the sufferers from pain.

 

If He could do those wonders then,

 

let's prove our mighty God again.

 

Why can't the God who raised the dead,

 

gave little David Goliath's head

 

cast out the demons with a word,

 

yet sees the fall of one wee bird

 

do signs and miracles today,

 

in that same good old-fashioned way?

 

HE CAN. He's just the same today.

 

 

Martin Luther
