Representative Text

1 I have found a rest complete
For a weary, troubled soul,
Where the billows of life’s sea
Never o’er the spirit roll;
At the feet of Him who came,
Took our sins, and bore our shame,
At the feet of Jesus slain,
At the feet of Jesus.

Refrain:
At His feet, oh, blessed spot!
His love it changeth not;
And I sit me down and rest
At the feet of Jesus.

2 Sinners come, there’s room for all,
From thy heavy load be freed;
Come, ye friendless, weary one,
Find a Friend for ev’ry need;
Weary, troubled, and oppressed,
All may find eternal rest
With that Saviour, ever blest,
At the feet of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Here is pardon for each sin,
Here is mercy, sure and free;
Hear Him, o’er thy heart’s wild din,
Sweetly calling: “Come to me;”
Come—with all thy sin and fear,
Lay thy ev’ry burden here,
And in joy complete appear
At the feet of Jesus. [Refrain]
