Representative Text

1 O praise the Lord that we may find,
A resting place most sweet,
Where we can boldly enter in,
And sit at Jesus’ feet.

We come, we come,
A happy and safe retreat,
To find, to find,
At Jesus’ blessed feet.

2 O joy divine on earth to feel,
The riches of his love;
To wait and hear the Master speak,
A message from above. [Refrain]

3 The common dusty way of life,
With splendors gleam and glow,
While sitting at his feet we find,
Our Beulah land below. [Refrain]

4 Then soul be cheerful in your faith,
Trust in the Lord! be strong!
And rest awhile at Jesus’ feet,
Who makes your life a song. [Refrain]

Telegraph, however, it was not until she was a widow with eight children to support that she started writing in earnest. She wrote articles, librettos, nature stories and other works, as well as hymns.
