Jesus at Bethany
James J. J. Tissot (1836-1902)

’Twas good to sit at Jesus’ feet
In Bethany, dear Bethany!
And feel His tender love so sweet,
In Bethany, dear Bethany!

Refrain

If now our faith and prayers agree,
Our grateful hearts as glad may be
As those that Jesus came to see
In Bethany, dear Bethany!

His welcome voice with joy they heard
In Bethany, dear Bethany!
They treasured up each precious word,
In Bethany, dear Bethany!

Refrain

Whene’er He came their souls were blest
In Bethany, dear Bethany!
His presence left a hallowed rest,
In Bethany, dear Bethany!

Refrain

O Savior, make these hearts of ours
Thy Bethany, dear Bethany!
And grant to us the balmy showers
Of Bethany, dear Bethany!

Refrain
