This is a classic Hymn that is often played in jams. Watch out for the tricky timing. There's a measure of 2/4 just before the D chord shows up. One way to internalize this is through repetitive listening. Listen to the Tunefox arrangement or check out the Osborne brothers' version. Another thing you can do is sing or speak the lyrics. That really helps you get the timing down in a natural way.Learn

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 Leaning, leaning Safe and secure from all alarms Leaning, leaning Leaning on the everlasting arms 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 Leaning, leaning Safe and secure from all alarms Leaning, leaning Leaning on the everlasting arms
