Video from Hymns of Grace

"The hymn, "I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say" #147 from Hymns of Grace. I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say Words: Horatio Bonar, 1846, alt. Music: English County Songs, 1893; harm. Ralph Vaughan Williams, 1906 1. 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. 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 Je sus, and I drank of that lifegiving 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, 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 till trav’ling days are done. Vocalists: Deb Victa, Philip Webb Instrumentalists: Cathy Biagini, Sarah Biagini, Mark Rice Arrangement from Hymns of Grace Accompaniment Edition" from video introduction
