(Chorus)
If I could just hold out till tomorrow
If I could just hold out till tomorrow
If I could just hold out till tomorrow
I know the Lord is gonna make a better day

1. Well, the trouble and sorrow are a-coming my way
The darkness hanging over hides the light of day
The heartaches are piling up about sky-high
And I’m wondering if it ain’t my time to die

Repeat Chorus

2. Well, the Lord told Moses, “Take a-hold of My Hand
“I’m guiding My children to the Promised Land”
And when spoke from the burning bush
He said, “Moses, I’m a-leading, now don’t you push”

Repeat Chorus

3. Well, the Lord put Jonah in the briny deep
He drifted to the bottom where the whale did sleep
Jonah said, “Lordy, Lordy, I’ve had enough
“Three days and nights and then the whale spit him up”

Repeat Chorus

4. Well, they put old Daniel in the Lion’s Den
The thing they didn’t know, old Dan had a friend
Well, he prayed every morning, every noon and night
The lion got the lockjaw and couldn’t take a bite

Repeat Chorus

(Tag)
I know the Lord’s a-gonna make a better day

Repeat Chorus twice
