Leaning on the Everlasting Arm

What a fellowship, what a joy divine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
What a blessedness, what a peace is mine,
Leaning on the everlasting arms.


Refrain: Leaning, leaning, safe and secure from all alarms;
Leaning, leaning, leaning on the everlasting arms.


O how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
O how bright the path grows from day to day,
Leaning on the everlasting arms. Refrain


What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
Leaning on the everlasting arms;
I have blessed peace with my Lord so near,
Leaning on the everlasting arms. Refrain

And Robert Mitchum sings it in Night Of The Hunter - but his character's relentless repetition of it distorts it into something like an alarm warning. Makes your blood run cold -

I remember Saroyan quotes lines from "Leaning" several places in The Human Comedy (original story).
