Your Sunday Hymn: I Heard The Voice Of Jesus Say

I Heard The Voice of Jesus Say words by Horatio Bonar, tune Kingsfold is about the gospel call of Christ to come to him, find him, see him, drink, and rest, and be revived in him.

Simple, sweet and encouraging, this hymn is one of my favorites..

Lyrics:

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,
so weary, 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.

 


Words: Horatio Bonar, 1846

Music: Kingsfold,
