lyrics for "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms"


What a fellowship, what a joy divine, leaning on the everlasting arms;
what a blessedness, what a peace is mine, leaning on the everlasting arms.

(refrain)
  (treble)    Lean   -   ing,   lean   -   ing,
  (base)      Leaning on Jesus, leaning on Jesus,

  (combined)  safe and secure from all alarms;

  (treble)    Lean   -   ing,   lean   -   ing,
  (base)      Leaning on Jesus, leaning on Jesus,

  (combined)  leaning on the everlasting arms.

O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way, leaning on the everlasting arms;
O how bright the path grows from day to day, leaning on the everlasting arms.

(repeat refrain)

What have I to dread, what have I to fear, leaning on the everlasting arms?
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near, leaning on the everlasting arms.

(repeat refrain)
