I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

A hymn by Horatius Bonar (1808-1899)

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 him in 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 my star, my sun;

And in that light of life I’ll walk, till trav’ling days are done.

Take a Sabbath rest and find refreshment for your soul and for your life!

Love, Nicolelisamaria
