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, 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, 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 all my journey’s 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.
