#225: I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

(Part of a series singing through the hymnbook I grew up with: Great Hymns of the Faith)


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 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 – thy morn shall rise, And all thy day be bright.”

I looked o Jesus, and I found In Him my Star, my Sun,

And in that Light of life I’ll walk, Till trav’ling days are done.
