68 - Leaning on the everlasting arms
 
1 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.
 
Refrein Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on Jesus, leaning on Jesus,
Safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning,
Leaning on Jesus, leaning on Jesus,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
 
2 Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.
 
3 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.
