1 Just leave it for tomorrow—’cause it’s not today,
And troubles from the day before have passed away!
So take the day God’s given you, and that’s enough;
Tomorrow may not come, and yesterday was tough.

So leave tomorrow and today on God’s doormat,
Where ev’rything is better—leave it just like that!
Don’t pick back up tomorrow or another woe,
Today is where He leads us, and with us will go.

2 If you would take tomorrow when today’s not through,
A knot comes in your stomach, and your breath’s short, too,
So that you feel so weary and can’t take today,
So drop tomorrow and let Jesus lead the way. [Refrain]

3 When we take more ourselves than what we ever could,
It can’t be joyful living, peaceable or good.
God said His yoke is easy, and His burden’s light.
So walk today with Jesus, and you’ll win the fight! [Refrain]

4 If you hold on tomorrow, it will weigh you down.
You cannot carry it because today’s around.
Alone you will be lonely and the way seems long,
But Jesus gives you joy, and you’ll walk with a song! [Refrain]
