I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

Melody - "Vox dilecti", John B. Dykes, 1868; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Horatius Bonar, 1846

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.
2. 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.
3. 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 traveling days are done.
