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."
I came to Jesus as I was,
So weary, 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, your morn shall rise,
And all your 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 trav'ling days are done.


1 Oí la voz del Salvador
decir con tierno amor:
"¡Oh! ven a mí, no temas más,
cargado pecador!"
Cansado estaba, y sin tardar
a Cristo acudí,
Y luego dulce alivio y paz
por de él recibí.

2 Oí la voz del Salvador
decir: "Venid, bebed;
yo soy la fuente de salud
que apaga toda sed".
Con sed de Dios, del vivo Dios,
buscando al Emanuel,
lo hallé; mi sed él apagó,
y ahora vivo en él.

3 Oí su dulce voz decir:
"Del mundo soy la luz;
miradme a mí, y salvos sed;
hay vida por mi cruz".
Mirando a Cristo, luego en él
mi norte y sol hallé;
y en esa luz de vida,
yo feliz siempre andaré.
Por siempre viviré.
