which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh;

the least of our brothers, that’s how you treat Him.”

All things are possible; I can mount on wings like eagles’ and soar.
When I call on Jesus, mountains are gonna fall
’cause He’ll move Heaven and Earth to come rescue me, when I call.
Weary brother, broken daughter,
Widowed, widowed lover, you’re not alone.
If you’re tired and scared of the madness around you,
If you can’t find the strength to carry on
call Him in the morning, in the afternoon time
late in the evening. He’ll be there.
When your heart is broken,
And you feel discouraged,
You can just remember that He said
He’ll be there.”
