Leaning On The Everlasting Arms Of The Lord


Words (except public domain portions) and Music by Darcy L. Watkins


Verse 1

What a fellowship, what a joy divine
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms;
What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms.
I’m safe and secure from all alarms,
I’m leaning leaning on the everlasting arms of the Lord.

Verse 2

O how sweet to walk, in this pilgrim way,
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms;
O how bright the path (it) grows from day to day,
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms.
I’m safe and secure from all alarms,
I’m leaning leaning on the everlasting arms of the Lord.

Chorus

I’m leaning (I’m leaning)
I’m leaning (I’m leaning)
I’m leaning leaning leaning on the everlasting arms, (yes!)
I’m leaning (I’m leaning)
I’m leaning (I’m leaning)
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms of the Lord.
I’m safe and secure from all alarms,
I’m leaning leaning on the everlasting arms of the Lord.

Verse 3

What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms;
I have blessed peace, with my Lord so near,
I’m leaning on the everlasting arms.
I’m safe and secure from all alarms,
I’m leaning leaning on the everlasting arms of the Lord.

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

Ending (coda – in place of ending of chorus the last time)

I’m safe and secure from all alarms,
I’m leaning leaning on the everlasting arms … yes
I’m safe and secure from all alarms,
I’m leaning leaning on the everlasting arms … yes
I’m safe and secure from all alarms,
I’m leaning leaning on the everlasting arms of the Lord.
