Leaning on the Everlasting Arms

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!
  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!
What have I to dread, what have I to fear,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms!
I have peace complete with my Lord so near,
  Leaning on the Everlasting Arms!

The Holy Spirit brought this hymn to me while in my fellowship and prayer time this morning with Him.

Psalm 37:7 AMP says

Be still and rest in the Lord; wait for Him and patiently lean yourself upon Him.

“Lean yourself upon Him” My first thought was the disciple whom He loved, John, leaning upon Jesus’ breast while at the Last Passover Meal. Wow! To be able to have that experience to be that close to my Beloved Lord and


Oh how I thank Him for taking the way of the cross so I too can lean upon His loving heart!

Leaning on Jesus, leaning on Jesus, leaning on His everlasting arms!

Yesterday Morning: Birgitta my Wife of 50 years and I bickered for hours over a differance of opinion, finally she gave up and left me alone. I cried and sang "Leaning On The Ever Lasting Arms" over and over again. I called The Pharmacy and told the young Lady in the answering service about our bickering and we both laughed Heartfelt Joyfully about the whole incident. Today I’ve learned to play the song on my guitar as well. Thanks to My Lord Jesus Christ And Our Heavenly Father, The God Of All Creation. I feel only Thankfulness And Peace And Joy. Life is A Miracle. Ive never had an human Father. But ive allways have had one in Heaven.

This hymn is such a moving and inspirational one. One can imagine our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ just being our support for all the trials and tribulations that we face.

The inner peace from this songs takes me away to a calm and soothing place of serenity

This song helped me through my husband’s hospitalization with Covid. I would picture Jesus walking through each new day with me, even when I didn’t want to face it. He never left me, and I leaned on him the whole time. My husband made a full recovery and we are so thankful.

The many things and hardships I have gone through left me in a "BAD SITUATION" Until GOD worked on my Heart ♥ and I Repented and Accepted JESUS CHRIST as my SAVIOR and LORD. I have taken this Song as Deep Inspiration to always "LEAN ON JESUS, AMEN!"

I will be released from a care facility in two days after an eight month stay. I would not have made it through the ordeal without the everlasting arms of Jesus around me.

Despite the circumstances around us. In the whirlwind of politics and health scares, we find safety, security, joy and peace when we LEAN into the arms of Jesus. Like a Father holding his small child securely above the chaos all around. When we jump into Daddys arms he will lead us where he wants us to go.
