"I Heard The Voice of Jesus Say"

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.

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: 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 travelling days are done.

~By Horatius Bonar (1808-1889)~


A Little Note from Cobblestone Road Ministries:

We rest in Christ alone. Christ Jesus is our Light.
He lights our path along the journey through this life.
Eternity is ever before us and we truly long for the day
when we shall see our Savior face to face. For now, we
see through a very dim glass. Our blessings on earth are but
a mere taste of what awaits us when we shall forever be with
the Lord of Glory! Praise the name of Jesus! Do we long to see
His face? Do we hear His voice? Do we rest in Him? Only in Christ
Jesus can we find the peace and joy that we need. We cannot find rest in another human being. We cannot find contentment in material things. He is
the answer forthe longing heart! He is our resting place. Trust in Him today
for He shall never fail leave you, nor forsake you! He will put a new song in your heart! He is Living Water for your thirsty soul!
Rest in Christ Jesus today!

Romans 15:13 
Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
