I heard the voice of Jesus say, Come unto Me and rest;

Lay down, thou weary one, lay down Thy head upon My breast.

  G             D    G                   C   D
I came to Jesus as I was, weary and worn and sad;

  C              G       D          G      D       Em
I found in Him a resting place, and He has made me glad.

    C                G    D          G         D          Em
The living water; thirsty one, stoop down, and drink, and live.

  G              D     G                     C    D
I came to Jesus, and I drank of that life giving stream;

   C                       G    D            G      D      Em
My thirst was quenched, my soul revived, and now I live in Him.

     C            G          D          G      D      Em
Look unto Me, thy morn shall rise, and all thy day be bright.

  G                D     G                     C  D
I looked to Jesus, and I found in Him my Star, my Sun;

    C                G         D          G         D        Em
And in that light of life I’ll walk, till traveling days are done.

Has many mansions; I’ve a place prepared for you in love.

  G              D       G                   C   D
I trust in Jesus—in that house, according to His word,

    C                 G          D       G    D        Em
Redeemed by grace, my soul shall live forever with the Lord.
