The single “You Are Able,” captured live as a part of the 2018 release “One Rainy Night,” is the result, simply, of gratefulness. In our fast-paced world where nearly everything is vying for our attention, it can be powerful to take a look around at all the good one has and consider where it came from. James 1:17 says that, “Every good and perfect gift comes from God.” So when the song alludes to the weight we carry and needs we need met, the simple chorus builds and reminds us of the truth of the song: “Thankful, I am thankful. When I cannot, You are able.”

Lyrics

[Verse]


When the weight is heavy
When the fears are many
I find peace beyond what I can see
Though my life’s at midnight
You break through with daylight
I find strength a firm security

[pc]


When I’m at the end of my own rope
You’ve given me a future and a hope

[Chorus]


Thankful, I am thankful
When I cannot, You are able
Thankful, I am thankful
When I cannot, You are able

[Verse]


When my needs cry anthems
Like a path needs lanterns
I find peace beyond what I can see
Though the war is mounted
And I am surrounded
I find strength a firm security

[pc]



[Chorus]



[bridge ]


Come what may I will say
That I trust in Your name
God of then, now and forever (repeat)

[Verse]


Though the war is mounted
And I am surrounded
I find strength a firm security (repeat)
I find You my firm security

[Chorus]


Thankful, I am thankful
When I cannot, You are able
Thankful, I am thankful
When I cannot, You are able

[tag]


When I cannot, You are able
When I cannot, You are able
