227. Shine on Me

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.”

Shine on me, Shine on me.
Let the light from the lighthouse,
Shine on me.
O, Shine on me. Shine on me,
Let the light from the lighthouse
Shine on me.

2 With pitying eyes the Prince of Peace
Beheld our helpless grief;
He saw, and O amazing love!
He came to our relief. [Refrain]
