2023 Youth Theme Music Album and Website Now Available – Church Newsroom

Available Editions

 
The new “I Can Do All Things Through Christ” music album, website and other resources supporting the 2023 Youth Theme are now available.
The theme “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Philippians 4:13) was announced in September by the Young Women and Young Men General Presidencies of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“This collection of songs is our best yet,” said Nik Day, a seasoned musician and Church employee who collaborated with others to write and compose the songs on the 2023 Youth Album. “I hope the youth can delve into these songs, understand the deep meanings of the lyrics and apply the principles into their lives.”
The 2023 album can be streamed in English on 35 different streaming platforms, including the 2023 youth theme website, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Gospel Library and the Sacred Music app. Language versions of the album will be added to these platforms as they become available.
Along with links to download the songs, the 2023 youth theme website has sheet music for use as needed.
While Day was writing the 2023 album, he contemplated what it meant to be able to do “all things” through Christ. “I tried to write songs that were empowering, that help the listener see their potential and how that potential is magnified when we stay close to the Savior,” he said. “If we stay close to Christ, we really can do all things,” he added, “because He will be with us every step of the way. We never have to be alone.”
The 2023 Youth Theme comes from the New Testament, which Church members will study next year for Come, Follow Me. “There is a lot of New Testament symbolism throughout the album,” Day said. “The line in the theme song that says, ‘When I’m locked inside a prison cell, he breaks my chains,’ alludes to Paul when he was in prison, and ‘when I’m laid into the grave, he rolls the stone away’ is a reference to the Savior’s resurrection and His power over death.”

Art, posters, videos and other resources on the 2023 theme are also available now on the 2023 Youth Theme website in 10 languages.
Leaders, parents, and youth are encouraged to download and use these resources throughout the year to help bring focus and inspiration for activities, camps, youth conferences and devotionals.
In the coming year, find content related to the “I can do all things through Christ” theme in “For the Strength of Youth” magazine, the Gospel Living feed, and on Church social media channels. For experiences from youth, follow @StriveToBe on Instagram.
