158. At My Redeemer's Feet

1. I ask not for the highest place,
But find a spot more sweet,
Where God bestows on me His grace,
At my Redeemer’s feet.

Come joy or pain, come weal or woe,
In Christ I am complete;
My highest place is lying low,
At my Redeemer’s feet.

2. Tho’ waves of darkness round me roll,
I have a safe retreat;
No storm can ever harm a soul,
At my Redeemer’s feet. [Refrain]

3. He gives me from His loving hand,
The finest of the wheat;
I live in Heaven’s border land,
At my Redeemer’s feet. [Refrain]

4. And when I reach the mystic sea,
Where earth and Heaven meet,
I’ll spend a blest eternity,
At my Redeemer’s feet. [Refrain]
