Representative Text

1 Oh, the peace that fills my soul,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus,
Cleansed from sin, made free and whole,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus.

Chorus:
This is my abiding place,
Cloth’d with his abounding grace,
Looking upward to his face,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus.

2 Christ is min in storm and calm,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus,
All my wounds are filled with balm,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Chorus]

3 Here I rest from toil and strife,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus;
Safe beneath the Tree of Life,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Chorus]

4 Come ye guilty and be healed,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus;
Freely in God’s love revealed,
Sitting at the feet of Jesus. [Chorus]

Owens, Priscilla Jane, was born July 21, 1829, of Scotch and Welsh descent, and is now (1906) resident at Baltimore, where she is engaged in public-school work. For 50 years Miss Owen has interested herself in Sunday-school work, and most of her hymns were written for children's services. Her hymn in the Scotch Church Hymnary, 1898, "We have heard a joyful sound" (Missions), was written for a Sunday-school Mission Anniversary, and the words were adapted to the chorus "Vive le Roi" in the opera The Huguenots.
