I am leaning on his arm

Representative Text

1 I am safe as here I travel,
Holding Jesus' hand so warm,
While the threads of life unravel,
I am leaning on His arm.

I am trusting in the savior,
Gone are sins that can alarm;
Daily as I seek His favor,
I am leaning on His arm.

2 I am sowing for His reaping,
Fearing not a foe or harm
Tho the tempest may be sweeping;
I am leaning on His arm. [Refrain]

3 "What a friend we have in Jesus,"
When earth's dangers would alarm,
From our doubt and fear He frees us,
I am leaning on His arm. [Refrain]
