Full Text

1 Leaning on the arms of Jesus,
Oh, it is so sweet and precious!
He will surely bless and keep us,
Calmly resting free from care.

Leaning, leaning,
Safely on the arms of Jesus,
I’m leaning, yes, leaning,
Leaning on the arms of Jesus.

2 Leaning on His arms of power,
Jesus is my strong, high tower;
He’s my peace—a constant shower—
He will every need supply. [Refrain]

3 Leaning on His arms, I’m trusting,
What have I to fear? I’m resting;
Jesus is my constant blessing,
He will all my burdens bear. [Refrain]
