I know who holds tomorrow

40 some years ago a friend of mine passed in a big 4th of July flood in our aria . She was in a boat being Rescued by some fire men . I was told a big log hit the boat . Her mother , doughter and a foster child she was careing for as well as the firemen and others in the boat were lost that evening shortly after the fireworks . Her younger brother was the only one that lived . He hung onto a tree for many hours until some one found him .
We just don't know about tomorrow . A young man sang this song at her funeral . I'll never for get that day and this song .
My friend Doris and I were in our 20's

I don't know about tomorrow,

I just live from day to day;

I don't borrow from its sunshine,

For its sky 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.


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.


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 thru 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.


God Bless you and Your's , Mary
