The results are in. On February 3, 2014, I posted a poll on this blog, on Facebook, and through e-mail, asking for your favorite songs written by Ira Stanphill.  I listed 8 songs, also allowing for write-ins. The most votes went to the following 5 songs, listed with the year Ira wrote them.

#1 “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow” (1950).                                                                                    #2 “Room at the Cross for You” (1946).                                                                                             #3 “Mansion Over the Hilltop” (1949).                                                                                           #4 “He Washed My Eyes with Tears” (1955).                                                                                 #5 “Suppertime” (1950).

According to the poll, how well-liked was “I Know Who Holds Tomorrow”? It received 1 out of every 3 votes cast.

Had Ira lived he would have turned 100 on February 14, 2014. He died in 1993. Thank you for taking part in the poll as part of celebrating God’s gifts to Ira which haved blessed the rest of us.
