Original Key: G Major MP3
A traditional arrangement of the classic Lenten hymn for string orchestra, woodwinds and piano. Three verses. There are several tunes commonly used for this hymn- this arrangement uses the Vox Dilecti melody by John Dykes.
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.
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, 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 'til traveling days are done.
