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.

Representative Text

1 I have found a help unfailing in my time of greatest need,
I am leaning on the Lord;
Unto me he has been faithful, he has proved a friend indeed;
I am leaning on the Lord.

Refrain:
I am leaning, leaning, leaning on the Lord,
I am leaning, leaning, leaning on the Lord;
He supports me hour by hour
By his all-sustaining pow’r,
I am leaning, leaning, leaning on the Lord.

2 He upholds me, he supports me with his everlasting arm;
I am leaning on the Lord;
And the tho’t of his sustaining rids my soul of all alarm;
I am leaning on the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Tho’ my body and my spirit may grow faint and sick and sore;
I am leaning on the Lord;
He refreshes me when weary, every day he helps me more;
I am leaning on the Lord. [Refrain]

4 All the frailties of this body I can surely overcome,
I am leaning on the Lord;
For I know he will sustain me, and will bear me safely home;
I am leaning on the Lord. [Refrain]
