Refrain:
I am leaning on the Lord,
I am leaning on the Lord,
I am leaning on the Lord,
who died on Calvary.

1 Tell me, how did you feel when you come out,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness,
come out the wilderness?
Tell me, how did you feel when you come out
come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord? (Refrain)

2 Did you love everybody when you come out,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness,
come out the wilderness?
Did you love everybody when you come out,
come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord? (Refrain)

3 Did your soul feel happy when you come out,
come out the wilderness, come out the wilderness,
come out the wilderness?
Did your soul feel happy when you come out,
come out the wilderness, leaning on the Lord? (Refrain)
