I heard the voice of Jesus say

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’lling days are done.

All of my life Jesus has been ever so near and faithful! Psalm 73:26 is my life verse.."God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." So moving to see how this hymn speaks for many around the world!!

I enjoy this hymn to the tune of Hymn 395, O Jesus Christ grow Thou in me.

Very good, but there seems to be a bit elongated rest that you have added after the first line that I've never heard on this song before this.
