VERSE 1:
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
"Come unto Me and rest;
Lay down, O weary one, lay down,
Your head upon My chest."
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.

VERSE 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.

VERSE 3:
I heard the voice of Jesus say,
"I am this dark world's Light.
Look unto Me; your 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.
