Thanks to my brothers in the boy's dorm at GBBC, who sang these words of encouragement last night. They were having dorm devotions, and their voices carried these words of truth, beautiful words and melody to my hurting heart. (It also happens to be one of my favorite Pidgin songs based on the English "I don't know about tomorrow.") There is something powerful in Christian voices singing about the hope we have in Christ!

Mi no save long tumora; mi wokabaut long tude.
Mi no wari long ol traim; Jisas helpim mi long prea.
Bihain mi ken go long heven, na stap wantaim Jisas,
Bai mi lukm pes bilong Em na mi amamas tumas.

Mi no save long tumora. Wanem samting bai i kam?
Tasol God bilong tumora i ken helpim mipela.

Mi no wari long tumora; pen na sik i ken i kam.
Jisas Krais Em i Bikpela bilong stretim ol wan wan.
Sapos sin na pasin nogut i paulim bel bilong yu,
Brukim skru. singaut long Jisas, "Wasim mi long blut bilong yu"

Mi no save long tumora. Wanem samting bai i kam?
Tasol God bilong tumora i ken helpim mipela!
