It is No Secret

Stuart Hamblen was a hard drinking, horse-racing entertainer who was converted during a 1963 Billy Graham Crusade on the West Coast. Fired from his $1,000-a-week radio program because he refused to advertise beer, he was seeking God’s will for his life.

One day an actor said to him, “I’ve heard you haven’t taken a drink for thirty days. Tell me truthfully, Stuart, have you wanted one?” “No,” he answered. “It is no secret what God can do.” “You ought to write a song about ‘It is no secret what God can do,’” suggested the friend. Hamblen did, and he found his life’s work, and strength for every temptation and trial.

It is No Secret is one of my favorite hymns, and I'd like to share a slideshow I created featuring Daniel O'Donnell singing it. I hope you enjoy it. Be sure your sound is turned up before you click on "play."
