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.

Refrain:
	Leaning, leaning, 
	safe and secure from all alarms; 
	leaning, leaning, 
	leaning on the everlasting arms.

2.	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.
	(Refrain)

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.
	(Refrain)
