I Know Who Holds Tomorrow

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.


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.


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.


Many things about tomorrow
I don't seem to understand
But I know who holds tomorrow
And I know who holds my hand.
~ Ira Standphill

  1. I love this song, Elyssa.

    My Mama sings it so beautifully. She was taught it as she grew up and she has passed the memories and meanings on to us.

    Thank you for sharing.

    In Him;
    April
