Representative Text

1 Tell me, how did you feel when you come,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness.
Tell me, how did you feel when you come,
come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord.

Refrain:
I am leaning on the Lord,
I am leaning on his word.
I am leaning on the Lord who died on Calvary.

2 Did you get baptized when you come,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness.
Did you get baptized when you come,
come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord. [Refrain]

3 Did your soul feel happy when you come,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness.
Did your soul feel happy when you come,
come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord. [Refrain]
