This is regarded as Elvis's favorite Hymn from his army days and he had a copy of the Harmonizing Four's recording of it in his German home. Their version, which was titled "All Things Are Possible," was released on the Vee Jay label with Jimmy Jones singing the bass part. Writer Daniel Paul Rader was born in 1878 (though most biographies give 1877 as his year of birth) and lived to be 60 years old. He was a powerful evangelical preacher in the early twentieth century and wrote numerous modern hymns, including "Only Believe," which dates from 1921. The Harmonizing Four recorded the song as "All Things Are Possible" on VeeJay 845; the B-side was "Farther Along," which Elvis also recorded.
