Hymn Story: Sitting At the Feet of Jesus

Sitting at the Feet of Jesus, tells the story of Mary, sitting and listening at Jesus feet. Can you imagine the lessons and wisdom she learned from the Lord?

Mary sat at Jesus feet

The account is found in Luke 10:40 and this Mary is the sister of Martha and Lazarus. If you recall the story, you will remember that Martha was upset because her sister was not helping her prepare the meal. Jesus tells Martha, “Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her.” {Luke 10:42}

Sitting at the Feet of Jesus is attributed to J. Lincoln Hall {1860-1930}.

No other information is available on the hymn. We know it was published in the 1939 Favorite Songs and Hymns songbook.

How many times are we too busy serving instead of sitting at the feet of Jesus. I know I’m guilty of this. Are you?
