At the feet of Je­sus wait­ing,
I have heard His sweet com­mand,
Go and work with­in My vine­yard,
Labor with thy heart and hand.


I am wait­ing, always wait­ing,
Waiting now to do His will:
Waiting now to hear the mes­sage,
And my call­ing to ful­fill.

At the feet of Je­sus wait­ing,
Doing what He bids me do,
Toiling, suf­fer­ing, and en­dur­ing,
For His grace will bear me through.


At the feet of Je­sus wait­ing,
Laying ev­ery bur­den down,
Leaving all the world can give me,
For a bright and glo­ri­ous crown!
