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.

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

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 both Star and Sun
And in that Light of Life I'll walk
Till all my days are done.
