Words & Music: Stuart Hamblen
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.

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 never walk alone.
Always feel at home,
Wherever you may go.

There is no power can conquer you
While God is on your side.
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.
Recorded: 1957/01/19, first released on EP

This is such a beautiful song and Elvis' rendition of it at the age of 22 was marvelous. Elvis always sang gospel songs with such great passion, intensity and feeling. He truly loved singing gospel songs.

The only song I really enjoy on the gospel EP is "Peace In The Valley."

Presley early gospel recording "never ceases to amaze me". He has such a passion and feeling that it's hard to imagine that he was only 22 and was Elvis The Pelvis/The King of Rock and Roll. Just precious! Nowadays it is no secret what Elvis can do, but back then it was once again ground breaking.

I was not overly impressed as a group with the 4 gospel songs officially released in 1957 as I don't think Elvis had the voice and technique that was to follow 3 years later when he could effortlessly handle this type of song. However gioving that opinion I think this is the best of the bunch and has a certain charm and magic not so evident in the other 3 performances - 3 1/2 stars for this one.

Solemn. Not as smooth as his sixties gospels, but nevertheless besutifully sung.
