Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

Full Text

1 O, ain't I glad I've got out the wilderness,
Got out the wilderness, got out the wilderness,
Ain't I glad I've got out the wilderness,
Leaning on the Lord.
O, ain't I glad I've got out the wilderness,
Got out the wilderness, got out the wilderness,
Ain't I glad I've got out the wilderness,
Leaning on the Lord.

Refrain:
Come a-leaning on the Lord,
Come a-leaning on the Lord,
Come a-leaning on the Lamb of God
that takes away the sin of the world.

2 O, come along, mourner, run out the wilderness,
Run out the wilderness, run out the wilderness,
Come along, mourner, run out the wilderness,
Leaning on the Lord.
O, come along, mourner, run out the wilderness,
Run out the wilderness, run out the wilderness,
Come along, mourner, run out the wilderness,
Leaning on the Lord. [Refrain]

3 O, you're long time mourner, coming out the wilderness,
Coming out the wilderness, coming out the wilderness,
Long time mourner, coming out the wilderness,
Leaning on the Lord.
O long time mourner, coming out the wilderness,
Coming out the wilderness, coming out the wilderness,
Long time mourner, coming out the wilderness,
Leaning on the Lord. [Refrain]

4 O, ain't I glad I've got out the wilderness,
Got out the wilderness, got out the wilderness,
Ain't I glad I've got out the wilderness,
Leaning on the Lord.
O, ain't I glad I've got out the wilderness,
Got out the wilderness, got out the wilderness,
Ain't I glad I've got out the wilderness,
Leaning on the Lord. [Refrain]
