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.

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