‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

This lovely old hymn from 1887, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, I first heard in a movie, Night of the Hunter. That wasn’t the most wholesome context for it, but the hymn stayed with me. Here we have it performed by Nathan and Lyle, autoharp and guitar, in a living room in Denton County, Texas. Plus lyrics and chords, if you want to sing or strum along.
