Representative Text

1 At Jesus’ feet, O joy so sweet;
I found forgiveness free;
And in the fulness of his love
He breathed his peace on me.

O joy so sweet! at Jesus’ feet
My soul has found retreat,
And there alway my soul would stay,
For that is heav’n to me;
And there alway my soul would stay,
For that is heav’n to me.

2 At Jesus’ feet, O shelter sweet!
My spirit seeks for rest,
And finds a sure and safe retreat
Upon his loving breast. [Refrain]

3 At Jesus’ feet, O place so sweet!
I find new strength each day,
And grace to help in time of need,
And courage on the way. [Refrain]

4 At Jesus’ feet, that blest retreat,
My soul would ever be,
To gave into his loving face
Who shed his blood for me. [Refrain]
