This is an old song but I was last reminded of it when I heard the Primitive Quartet sing it recently.  Needing the words.

Would this be the song?

GOD CAN

I can't tell when friends are true, but God can,
I can't look inside of you, but God can
Can't turn darkness into light, can't make mountains snowy white
Can't give blinded eyes their sight, but God can

Chorus:
Sometimes, I wonder in His plan, if He included me
And then, I think how one small acorn made the big oak tree
I can't make the morning dew, I can't make the skies a blue
I can't make a dream come true, but God can

Verse:
I can't make a simple cloud, but God can,
I can't feed a hungry crowd, but God can
I can't make the lame to walk, I can't make the dumb to talk
Can't put corn upon a stalk, but God can.

Chorus:
Sometimes, I wonder in His plan, if He included me
And then, I think how one small acorn made the big oak tree
God will give the strength we lack, follow Him and don't look back
Sometimes, we can't see the track, but God can

Verse:
I can't calm the raging sea, but God can,
Can't make honey like a bee, but God can
I can't make the lightening stop,
Can't make earth produce a crop
I can't make it rain a drop, but God can

Chorus:
Our great men showed their mighty power, on land, and air and sea
But, science can't produce one thing that lives, or dies, or breathes
I don't know just what's in store, I can't see through Heaven's door
Never walked this way before, we don't know what we're asking for.....

I CAN'T BUT GOD CAN

I CAN'T CALM A RAGING STORM, BUT GOD CAN
RENEW THE FRESHNESS OF THE MORN, BUT GOD CAN
I CAN'T MAKE THE BIRDS TO SING
OR MAKE FLOWERS BLOOM, WHEN IT COMES SPRING
OR MEND THE SPARROW'S BROKEN WING, BUT GOD CAN
IT'S GOOD TO KNOW THE ONE WHO HUNG
THE STARS IN  BRIGHT ARRAY
AND GOOD TO KNOW HE SEES THE HURT I FEEL FROM DAY TO DAY
NO I CAN'T PART A MIGHTY SEA,  AND I CAN'T MAKE THE DEMONS FLEE
BUT I CAN FALL DOWN ON MY KNEES AND GOD CAN

THE CHILDREN GOD HAS TRUSTED INTO MY HANDS
THEIR FUTURE MY EYES MAY NOT SEE, BUT GOD CAN
TOMORROW'S DAWN, HE'LL STILL BE THERE
SO I'LL JUST LEAVE THEM IN HIS CARE
KNOWING HE WILL HEAR MY PRAYER, YES GOD CAN
IT'S GOOD TO KNOW THE ONE WHO HUNG
THE STARS IN  BRIGHT ARRAY
AND GOOD TO KNOW HE SEES THE HURT, I FEEL FROM DAY TO DAY
NO I CAN'T PART A MIGHTY SEA, AND I CAN'T MAKE THE DEMONS FLEE
BUT I CAN FALL DOWN ON MY KNEES AND GOD CAN
YES, I CAN FALL DOWN ON MY KNEES AND GOD CAN
