I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

  1. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
    “Come unto me and rest;
    lay down, O weary one, lay down
    your head upon my breast.”
    I came to Jesus as I was,
    weary and worn and sad;
    I found in him a resting place,
    and he has made me glad.
  2. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
    “Behold, I freely give
    the living water; thirsty one,
    stoop down and drink, and live.”
    I came to Jesus, and I drank
    of that life-giving stream;
    my thirst was quenched, my soul revived,
    and now I live in him.
  3. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
    “I am this dark world’s Light;
    look unto me, your morn shall rise,
    and all your days be bright.”
    I looked to Jesus and I found
    in him my Star, my Sun;
    and in that light of life I’ll walk,
    ’til trav’ling days are done.
