I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say

Author: Horatius Bonar Meter: D Appears in 1,161 hymnals Matching Instances: 3 Lyrics: 1 I heard the voice of Jesus say, “Come unto me and rest; lay down, O weary one, lay down your head upon my breast.” 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. 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; your morn shall rise and all your 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.

I Bow My Forehead to the Dust

Author: John G. Whittier Meter: D Appears in 72 hymnals Matching Instances: 1 Lyrics: 1. I bow my forehead to the dust, I veil mine eyes for shame, And urge, in trembling self distrust, A prayer without a claim. No offering of mine own I have, Nor works my faith to prove; I can but give the gifts He gave, And plead His love for love. 2. I dimly guess, from blessings known, Of greater out of sight; And, with the chastened psalmist, own His judgments too are right. And if my heart and flesh are weak To bear an untried pain, The bruiséd reed He will not break, But strengthen and sustain. 3. I know not what the future hath Of marvel or surprise, Assured alone that life and death His mercy underlies. And so beside the silent sea I wait the muffled oar; No harm from Him can come to me On ocean or on shore. 4. I know not where His islands lift Their fronded palms in air; I only know I cannot drift Beyond His love and care; And Thou, O Lord, by whom are seen Thy creatures as they be, Forgive me if too close I lean My human heart on Thee. Used With Tune: RESTING PLACE Text Sources: The Tent on the Beach, and Other Poems, 1867
