Representative Text

1 Weary with walking alone,
Long heavy-laden with sin;
Toiling all night without Christ,--
Rest for my soul shall I win,

Leaning on Jesus,
I walk at his side;
Leaning on Jesus,
I trust him, my Shepherd and Guide.

2 Fearing to stand for my Lord,
Trembling for weakness in prayer;
Yet on the bosom divine
Losing each sorrow and fear, [Chorus]

3 Anxious no longer for self,
Shrinking no longer from pain,
Leaning on Jesus alone,
He all my care will sustain. [Chorus]

4 Leaning, I walk in “the way,”
Leaning, “the truth” I shall know;
Leaning on heart-throbs of Christ,
Safe into “life” I may go. [Chorus]
