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 quench'd, my soul reviv'd
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 earthly days are done.
