Representative Text

1 There is a place I love to be,
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet,
To linger there is joy to me,
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet.

Refrain:
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet,
I sweetly rest, and I am blest;
My peace is perfect and complete,
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet.

2 The world cannot disturb my peace;
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet,
And love doeth more and more increase
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet. [Refrain]

3 I cannot have a doubt nor fear;
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet,
For all is sunshine, love and cheer,
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet. [Refrain]

4 Here will I linger day by day;
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet,
Here will I feast my soul alway,
Down low at my Redeemer’s feet. [Refrain]
