Come Learn Of The Meek And Lowly


Come, learn of the meek and lowly,
Come, sit at the Master’s feet;
No place in the world so holy,
No place in the world so sweet;
His lessons are plain and simple,
A balm to the wounded breast;
He maketh our burden lighter,
And giveth His children rest.

Refrain:
Then learn of the meek and lowly,
Come, sit at the Master’s feet;
No place in the world so holy,
No place in the world so sweet.

O if we were more like Jesus,
And more from the world apart,
Communing with Him in spirit,
And nearer to Him in heart,
We should not complain so sadly,
When trouble and care we meet,
But carry at once our sorrows,
And lay them at Jesus’ feet. [Refrain]

He wept o’er the holy city,
He wept o’er a loved one dead;
He knoweth our every trial,
And seeth the tears we shed;
O live that our souls may enter
His kingdom with joy complete;
And there, through eternal ages,
We’ll sit at the Master’s feet. [Refrain]
