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

2 I came to Jesus as I was,
so weary, worn, and sad,
And there I found a resting place,
where Jesus made me glad!

3 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“Behold, I freely give
The living water; thirsty one,
draw near, 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 am redeemed.

5 I heard the voice of Jesus say,
“I am this lost world’s Light,
Look unto me; your morn shall rise,
and all your day be bright.”

6 I looked to Jesus, and I found
my guiding Star, my Sun;
And in that light of life I’ll go
till traveling days are done.
