77 I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say
(EVAN. C. M.)
Horatius Bonar, 1846 William H. Havergal, 1846
 
1.

I heard the voice of Jesus Say,—
'Come unto me and rest;
Lay down thy weary one, lay down
Thy head upon my breast!'

2.

I came to Jesus as I was
Weary, and worn and sad;
I found him in a resting place,
And he hath 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 quenched, my soul revived,
And now I live in him.

5.

I heard the voice of Jesus say,—
'I am this dark worlds 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 travelling days are done. Amen.
