The Voice of Jesus.
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
|Come unto me and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down
Thy head upon my breast.|
2 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.
3 I heard the voice of Jesus say
|Behold! I freely give
The living water; thirsty one!
Stoop down, and drink, and live.|
4 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.
5 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
|I am this dark world's Light;
Look unto me; thy morn shall rise,
And all thy day be bright.|
6 I looked to Jesus, and I found,
In him my Star, my Sun;
And, in that light of life, I'll walk
Till traveling days are done.
Horatius Bonar, 1857.
