Full Text

1 Lean on the Lord, when the storm is sweeping,
Shelter and light Jesus will provide;
Safe you will be in His precious keeping,
For every need, strength will be supplied.

Refrain:
Lean on the Lord, let His grace uphold you,
Lean on the Lord, let His love enfold you;
Oft of His love He has sweetly told you;
Lean ever, lean on the Lord.

2 Lean on the Lord, when your courage fails you,
Then you will sing, tho’ the way be dim;
Trust in His strength when the foe assails you,
All the way home, truly lean on Him. [Refrain]

3 Lean on the Lord, love and trust Him ever,
For to the end Jesus will be true;
Oh, lean on Him, slighting, doubting never,
For, come what may, He will help you through. [Refrain]
