‘Leaning on the Everylasting Arms’

I’m happy someone asked for this–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms. This is the Gordon Quartet–no musical instruments but their own voices, just sitting in a living room. Remarkable.

The first time I ever heard this hymn was in Night of the Hunter, sung by Lillian Gish and Robert Mitchum.

  1. I’ve always associated the hymn with that film as well. And yet, it’s a beautiful hymn. Did you notice that Robert Mitchum and Lilian Gish sing it slightly differently? Mitchum leaves out the name of Jesus, while Gish always includes it.
