Representative Text

1 At the feet of Jesus,
Listening to His word;
Learning wisdom’s lesson
From her loving Lord;
Mary, led by heav’nly grace,
Chose the meek disciple’s place.
At the feet of Jesus is the place for me,
There a humble learner would I choose to be.

2 At the feet of Jesus,
Pouring perfume rare,
Mary did her Savior,
For the grave prepare;
And, from love the "good work" done,
She her Lord’s approval won.
At the feet of Jesus is the place for me,
There in sweetest service would I ever be.

3 At the feet of Jesus,
In that morning hour,
Loving hearts receiving
Resurrection power:
Haste with joy to preach the word;
"Christ is risen, praise the Lord!"
At the feet of Jesus, risen now for me,
I shall sing His praises through eternity.
