Sitting at the Feet of Jesus

Representative Text

1 Sitting at the feet of Jesus,
Learning of Him day by day,
Listening to the voice of His counsel,
Finding out the better way.

Refrain:
I am sitting, I am resting,
I am leaning on His breast divine,
I am sitting, I am resting,
O what blessed joy and peace are mine.

2 Resting in the arms of Jesus,
How secure from all alarm;
As He draws me close to His bosom,
How He sweetly keeps from harm. [Refrain]

3 Leaning on the breast of Jesus,
What a blessed peace divine!
I can hear His voice as He whispers,
“Child! forever thou art mine.” [Refrain]
