I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto Me and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one,
Lay down Thy 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 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; thy morn shall rise,
And all thy 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  all my journeys done. Amen.
