Full Text

1 My heart has found a resting place—
Sitting at the feet of Jesus;
‘Tis where I share the richest grace, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus.

Refrain:
Oh happy blissful rest!
Oh, how my soul is blest!
Of all the world ‘tis best;
Sitting at the feet of Jesus.

2 Here all my doubts and fears depart—
Sitting at the feet of Jesus;
Here Christ’s own blood doth cleanse my heart, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Refrain]

3 Here I take counsel how to live, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus;
Such wisdom God alone can give, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Refrain]

4 Her I am e’er supremely blest, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus;
When worn and weary I find rest, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Refrain]

5 Her I enjoy communion sweet, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus;
The Lord comes down my soul to greet, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Refrain]

6 Her I shall ever safely hide, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus;
For, God, with me, fore’er abide, —
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Refrain]
