Representative Text

1 I’m trustingly walking along life’s way,
Securely protected from day to day,
My burdens and sorrows I gladly lay
On the arm that is stronger than mine.

Chorus:
The arm that is stronger, is stronger than mine,
Upholds me by power, by pow’r divine,
No evil molesting, while here I a resting
On the arm that is stronger the mine.

2 The problems of life would perplex me here,
The trials would oft fill my heart with fear,
When most I am tempted then He is near
With an arm that is stronger than mine. [Chorus]

3 How often encumbered with anxious care,
How needless the burdens I often bear,
When Jesus is waiting my load to share
With an arm that is stronger than mine. [Chorus]
