I KNOW WHO HOLDS TOMORROW

Ira F. Stanphill

I don’t know about tomorrow, I just live from day to day

I don’t borrow from its sunshine, for its skies may turn to grey

I don’t worry o’er the future for I know what Jesus said

And today I’ll walk beside Him for He knows what is ahead

 

* Many things about tomorrow I don’t seem to understand

But I know who holds tomorrow and I know who holds my hand

 

Every step is getting brighter as the golden stairs I climb

Every burden’s getting lighter, every cloud is silver-lined

There the sun is always shining, there no tear will dim the eye

At the ending of the rainbow where the mountains touch the sky

(back to *)

 

I don’t know about tomorrow, it may bring me poverty

But the One who feeds the sparrow is the One who stands by me

And the path that is my portion may be through the flame or flood

But His presence goes before me and I’m covered with His blood

(back to *)
