Representative Text

1 Learning ev'ry day, words of truth and grace,
At the feet of Christ, what a blessed place;
List'ning to his voice, looking in his face,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus.

Learning ev'ry day, all about the way,
Learning how to watch, learning how to pray;
Learning how to live, learning how to die,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus.

2 Learning ev'ry day of the will of God,
Learning how to pass 'neath the chast'ning rod;
Learning how to tread where the saints have trod,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Chorus]

3 Learning ev'ry day as a little child,
Learning how to live patient, kind and mild;
Learning how to live pure and undefiled,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Chorus]

4 Learning how to live in a world of sin,
Learning how to have joy and peace within;
Learning how to have heaven here begun,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Chorus]

Johnson Oatman, Jr., son of Johnson and Rachel Ann Oatman, was born near Medford, N. J., April 21, 1856. His father was an excellent singer, and it always delighted the son to sit by his side and hear him sing the songs of the church. Outside of the usual time spent in the public schools, Mr. Oatman received his education at Herbert's Academy, Princetown, N. J., and the New Jersey Collegiate Institute, Bordentown, N. J. At the age of nineteen he joined the M.E. Church, and a few years later he was granted a license to preach the Gospel, and still later he was regularly ordained by Bishop Merrill. However, Mr. Oatman only serves as a local preacher. For many years he was engaged with his father in the mercantile business at Lumberton… Go to person page >
