Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
