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]
