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.

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]
