Special Treat: ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

Erlene happened to mention this hymn in one of her comments today, and I thought I’d post it before running out the door to take Robbie to the vet.

Sit back and enjoy this gorgeous rendition, by the Gordon Quartet, of this classic hymn, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.


By Request, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

Requested by Erlene: here’s a rousing rendition of a beloved old hymn, Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, by the choir and congregation of the Church of God. Turn up the volume and sing along–make a joyful noise unto the Lord.


‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

You wouldn’t think four people sitting in a room without any musical instruments could do much music-making–but listen to this.

Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, sung by the Gordon Quartet–making a joyful noise unto the Lord.


Encore, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

Pump up the volume and go with the hymn! This spirited rendition of Leaning on the Everlasting Arms is by The Church of God.

Hey, we need those arms! Who has never needed to be carried by the Lord? He gives us every breath we breathe.

Sing louder.


By Request, ‘Are You Washed in the Blood’ (Willie Nelson)

We have this request from Joshua, Are You Washed in the Blood of the Lamb, by Willie Nelson.

Somehow I always associated this hymn with the Salvation Army. Actually, it was written in 1878 by Elisha Hoffman–who also wrote Leaning on the Everlasting Arms… not to mention another 2,000 or so.


‘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.


‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’ (Fountainview Academy)

How I love this hymn! Leaning on the Everlasting Arms. I’d never heard it, until I heard Lillian Gish and Robert Mitchum sing it in Night of the Hunter. I’d sing it myself, only it chokes me up. So here let it be sung outdoors in British Columbia by the students at Fountainview Academy.


Encore, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

I’m sure I’ve posted this before, but it’s a great hymn with which to start the day–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms. This rousing, blow-the-doors-off rendition is by the choir and congregation of The Church of God.


Encore, ‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’

Not a bad way to start your day–this high-spirited rendition, by The Church of God, of Leaning on the Everlasting Arms.

I first heard this hymn in Night of the Hunter, sung by Lillian Gish, and I never forgot it.


‘Leaning on the Everlasting Arms’ (with Harmonica)

There are so many ways to perform this hymn, and here’s another one–Leaning on the Everlasting Arms, presented by the Gaithers, with Buddy Greene on the harmonica.  I play hymns on my harmonica, but it doesn’t sound like this. Anyway, there are a lot of ways to make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
