Ira Stanphill wrote songs because he loved God and Christ loves him, He reckoned they appealed to people because he had a life with ups, downs and inbetweens that people could relate to. He wrote “I know who holds tomorrow” during the disolution of his marriage

I Know Who Holds Tomorrow
By 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.

 

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 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…
