1 Tell me, how did you feel when you come out the wilderness,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness?
Tell me, how did you feel when you come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord?
Im'a leaning on the Lord,
Im'a leaning on the Lord,
Im'a leaning on the Lord, who died on Calvary.

2 Did you love ev'rybody when you come out the wilderness,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness?
Did you love ev'rybody when you come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord?
Im'a leaning on the Lord,
Im'a leaning on the Lord,
Im'a leaning on the Lord, who died on Calvary.

3 Did you feel like shouting when you come out the wilderness,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness?
Did you feel like shouting when you come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord?
Im'a leaning on the Lord,
Im'a leaning on the Lord,
Im'a leaning on the Lord, who died on Calvary.
