sunday song

  1. Zach and I watched a stageit show (online home show for super cheap) this past week.  The show was four guys and three of those happen to be three of Zach's favorite singer/songwriters.  Obviously Andrew Peterson was one and the other two were Andrew Osenga and Eric Peters.  AP and his daughter sang a beautiful version of this song.  The only other time I've ever heard it was in a tv show, either Andy Griffith or Little House or something, and didn't exactly do anything for me.  But after hearing them sing it I looked up the words and fell in love with them.  

The whole song is about abiding in Him (my word!) and in the second verse the line that says "Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day leaning on the everlasting arms".  Yep that was a good one!


  1. 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.
  2. Oh, how sweet to walk in this pilgrim way,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms;
    Oh, how bright the path grows from day to day,
    Leaning on the everlasting arms.
  3. 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.
