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.
(chorus)
Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.

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.

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.

BURWELL, CARTER / HOFFMAN, ELISHA / SHOWALTER, ANTHONY
