Hymn From the Heart -- I Know Who Holds Tomorrow

Maybe I'll start doing this weekly.  Sometimes a good hymn or spiritual song can do as much for the heart as the scriptures can, especially if the words of the song include lines or ideas from the Word of God.  We have a big collection of song books, and I can hardly resist the impulse to buy another one if I see one at a garage sale.  We sing the same ones over and over again, but there are so many good ones that are unknown!!  This one is a bit of an oldie, but it's still well-known.  In these days of uncertainty, it's a blessing to have a song in my heart.


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 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 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.

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 be 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.


Hope that's a blessing to you. We don't know what tomorrow holds, but my Saviour does.  Do you know Him?  He is the only unmoveable foundation, the only object worthy of your faith!

  3. I love this hymn!

    I wanted to say thank you for the suggestion of using 50/50 butter and olive oil. I'm going to try it! :)
