I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

Accompaniment track

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.

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.

I heard the voice of Jesus say:
'I am this dark world's light;
Look unto Me, the dawn shall rise,
And all your day be bright.'
I looked to Jesus, and I found
In him my Star, my Sun;
And in that light of life I'll walk
Till travelling days are done.
