Full Text

1 Just lean upon Jesus;
He'll help you along,
And brighten your pathway
With many a song.
Glad songs of rejoicing,
Because he is near,
So mighty to save you,
So willing to cheer.

Just lean upon Jesus,
Dear child of his care;
Just lean upon Jesus,
Your burden he'll share.

2 Just lean upon Jesus;
In service perplexed,
And ask him to show you
The work that comes “next;”
Then simply obeying,
Results leave with him;
His arm is unfailing,
His eye never dim. [Chorus]

3 Just lean upon Jesus;
And bring ev'ry care,
Tho’ trifling or heavy,
To him who hears pray'r.
He tells you so kindly
In him to confide,
O trust him most fully,
There's joy at his side. [Chorus]

4 Just lean upon Jesus
When troubles dismay;
He counts ev'ry footstep
That leads up to Day.
So near “the Beloved”
No ill need affright;
The valley of shadow,
His presence makes bright. [Chorus]
