1 At the Master’s feet I’m kneeling,
Laden with a weight of sin,
At my heart He’s long been knocking,
Now I haste to let Him in.

Blessed Jesus, loving Saviour,
At Thy feet I humbly kneel,
Take my heart, oh! blessed Master,
Not Thyself to me reveal.

2 Far from Jesus long I wandered,
But repenting of my past,
As a prodigal I hasten,
To His outstretch’d arms at last. [Refrain]

3 At the Master’s feet I’m kneeling,
With contrition I believe,—
In His promise, gracious promise,
And His pard’ning love receive. [Refrain]
