Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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 quench'd, 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 days 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'ling days are done.
