Kenny Rogers’ Rendition of “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”

There is nothing more beautiful than having someone you can lean on. God is someone we can lean on in times of crisis. He is always willing to listen to us. However, God is not only there during our times of trouble. He is with us every day and at any time. Indeed, this is a great joy for all of us.

The Making of “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms”

The gospel song “Leaning on the Everlasting Arms” was inspired by the Bible. Anthony J. Showalter wrote the words in 1887. The hymn was based on Deuteronomy 33:27.

The eternal God is your refuge,
    and underneath are the everlasting arms.
He will drive out your enemies before you,
    saying, ‘Destroy them!

This book in the Bible states that God, with all his power, will protect us. He will comfort us every day of our lives. What a relief it is to know we are never alone. Aside from being inspired by the Book of Deuteronomy, Showalter wrote the song when he found out two of his student’s wife died. He wrote this to serve as comfort for people who feel that life is dragging them down.
