Hope for Tomorrow


chasinblog2.jpgSeptember 17, 2017 (Sunday)

Today, in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, many people are wondering what tomorrow holds. Lives have been overturned, and people have been uprooted from a comfortable existence. Some have lost everything of a material nature; others have lost much. Ira Stanphill wrote this beautiful song, "I Know Who Holds Tomorrow," at a very difficult time in his life, and it stands today as a message to each of to depend upon our faith in the Lord as the One who loves and cares about us, who will always be with us, and who helps us look to the future as a promise of better things to come. (This blog is repeated from August 7, 2016).


I KNOW WHO HOLDS TOMORROW
Ira F. Stanphill
1950
I don't know about tomorrow
I just live for day to day
I don't borrow from the sunshine
For it's skies may turn to gray

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 lies ahead

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

Ev'ry step is getting brighter
As the golden stairs I climb
Ev'ry burden's getting lighter
Ev'ry 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

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