“I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say” / Classical Arrangement for Guitar

“I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say”
by Horatius Bonar, 1808-1899

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 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; 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.

Although Abraham Lincoln considered his formal education to be defective, from an early age, he compensated by devoting intense effort to self-education through reading. In his twenties, while serving as New Salem postmaster and a member of the Illinois state assembly, Lincoln studied the law and taught himself surveying. After mastering Kirkham’s Grammar, he gave his copy to Ann Rutledge, inscribing it: “Ann M. Rutledge is now learning grammer [sic].” Ann’s tragic death a short time later from typhoid fever ended the couple’s plans for the future.

Just got an email with the headline:  “Your AOL! Account Termination Request.”  The exclamation point looked phishy.  Sure enough, it turns out that unnecessary exclamations–along with misspellings and bad grammar– are one of the best indicators of a scam.   Hats off to all you grammar teachers out there!  (Exclamation intended.)
