"And in that Light of Life I'll walk, till traveling days are done."

This hymn has become a favorite 
for the beauty of the words by Horatio Bonar and the Kingsfold tune. 
It is beautifully sung here in a grand and glorious church building, but it does not require all that formality. 
You can sing it in a choir robe or a bathrobe! 
Be encouraged!~





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 traveling days are done.
