|Text:||I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say|
|Composer:||John Bacchus Dykes|
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.
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.
4. I heard the voice of Jesus say,
My Father’s house above
Has many mansions; I’ve a place
prepared for you in love.
I trust in Jesus—in that house,
according to His word,
Redeemed by grace, my soul shall live
forever with the Lord.
