        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,
        Weary and 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 traveling days are done.
