Representative 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]
