Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I’m leaning on the arm of God,
I see my Saviour’s face;
I’m cleansed in his atoning blood,
I know the perfect peace.

I’m cleansed, yes, sweetly cleansed,
In my Savior’s precious blood,
I’m cleansed, yes, I’m sweetly cleansed,
While leaning on the arm of God.

2 No longer mighty passions sweep
Like tempests o’er my soul,
I’ve now that heav’nly power within
That gives me sweet control. [Refrain]

3 I trust my God; he gives me grace
In every trying hour;
He helps me run my earthly race,
And holds me by his power. [Refrain]

4 Tis joy to trust him,—joy to know
My sins are washed away,
To grasp the prize love doth bestow,—
The dawn of heaven’s bright day. [Refrain]
