It Is No Secret (What God Can Do) is a Southern Gospel song composed by Stuart Hamblen in the 1950s.[1]

The Bill Kenny versionEdit

In 1951 The Ink Spots lead singer Bill Kenny recorded It Is No Secret for the Decca label. His recorded version which also featured "The Song Spinners" was the first to make the US pop charts, reaching #18.[2]

The Elvis Presley versionEdit

Elvis Presley recorded his version in Radio Recorders Studio 1, Hollywood, on January 19, 1957.[3] It was released on Elvis' Christmas Album (RCA Victor LOC 1035) in November 1957.[4] The producer was Steve Sholes.[3] When heard by Paul McCartney, in early 1958, he took the chorus, as done for the first time by the Jordainaires, and included them in his first recording with the Beatles, "In spite of all the danger", a song he feels was inspired, this time consciously, by another Presley song, "Trying to get to you"
