Author: H. Bonar Hymnal: The New Christian Hymnal #431 (1929) Meter: 126.96.36.199 D Hymnal Title: The New Christian Hymnal Lyrics: 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 trav'ling days are done. Topics: Choral Section Invitation Languages: English Tune Title: RESTING-PLACE
