Often Do My Footsteps Falter

Often do my footsteps falter,
Shadows gather over me,
But I find Thee, Lord, beside me,
And I trusting, lean on Thee.

Leaning, Lord, on Thee,
Leaning, Lord, on Thee,
When the way the darkest seemeth,
Then, dear Lord, I lean on thee.

Human love is often faithless,
Earthly riches from us flee,
Then we find our sweetest comfort,
Leaning, blessed Lord, on Thee. [Refrain]

When death’s valley dark I enter,
Though no light there comes to me
Yet no doubts my soul will torture,
Leaning there, dear Lord, on Thee. [Refrain]
