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
All weary worn and sad
And found him a resting place,
And found in him a resting place
And he hath made me glad.

I heard the voice of Jesus say
I am dark world’s light,
Look unto me, thy morn shall rise,
And all thy day be bright,
I look’d to Jesus and I found In him my star, my sun,
And in that light of life I’ll walk,
And in that light of life, I’ll walk
Till trav'ling days are done,
Till trav'ling days are done.
