I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

Verse 1:
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Come unto me and rest;
Lay down, thou weary one, lay down
Thy head upon my breast.”

Verse 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.

Verse 3:
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
The living water–thirsty one
Stoop down, and drink, and live.”

Verse 4:
I came to Jesus, and I drank
Of that life-giving stream;
My thirst was quench’d, my soul revived,
And now I live in Him.

Verse 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.”

Verse 6:
I looked to 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.

H. Bonar, D.D./Wm.H. Havergal
