242. I heard the voice of Jesus say

C.M.D.

Vox Dilecti:

John Bacchus Dykes, 1868

Horatius Bonar, 1846

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 my Star, my Sun;

And in that light of life I'll walk

Till traveling days are done.
