Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 I sit at the feet of Jesus,
Nor heed as the time goes by,
His banner of love is o’er me,
And happy indeed am I.

Under his banner I peacefully dwell,
Peacefully dwell, blissfully dwell,
And Jesus my King has taught me to sing
‘Tis well with me now, ‘tis well.

2 I sit at the feet of Jesus;
Was ever a joy like mine?
I list to the words of comfort
That fall from his lips divine. [Refrain]

3 I sit at the feet of Jesus,
In perfect and calm repose;
He crowneth my head with blessings,
With rapture my heart o’erflows. [Refrain]

4 Come, sit at the feet of Jesus,
Ye weary and toil-oppressed;
Come, learn of the meek and lowly,
Who giveth his children rest. [Refrain]
