“There is no pain Jesus can’t feel, no hurt He cannot heal; all things work according to His perfect will. No matter what you’re going through remember God is using you; for the battle is not yours, it’s the Lord’s. It’s the Lord’s, yes, it’s the Lord’s; hold your head up high don’t you fright it’s the Lord’s. It’s the Lord’s, it’s, the Lord’s; yes, it’s the Lord’s.”
