He's the God of Tommorrow as Well as Today


Have you ever just wondered what God has in store
When He’s saying, “Be patient—just one battle more? ”
Does He know all the burdens that you have to bear?
Does He know that you’re hurting; does He hear every prayer?
Yes, He knows about burdens and He knows that they’re real,
But He sees the next valley while you’re climbing this hill.
He knows all your heartaches will be taken away
For He’s the God of tomorrow as well as today.

He’s the God of tomorrow as well as today.
He knows words are hurtful, and He knows those we’ll say.
He knows that we’ll fail Him, but He knows that we care.
He knows when we’re crying, and He answers each prayer.
He knows about weakness, and He knows about sin.
His own Son He gave us—this vict’ry to win,
And He knows what we’ll be like when we’re fashioned His way
For He’s the God of tomorrow as well as today.

He’s the God of tomorrow as well as today.
He knows where we’re headed and how long we’ll stay.
He knows that these trials can hardly compare
With the pleasures and joys we will have over there.
When in white-robed perfection, together we’ll stand.
Throughout endless ages—oh won’t that be grand.
So, remember if He lets some trials come your way,
He’s the God of tomorrow as well as today.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

It is the hour when from the boughs
The nightingale's high note is heard;
It is the hour -- when lover's vows
Seem sweet in every whisper'd word;
And gentle winds and waters near,
