|THOU art the Way, to Thee alone
From sin and death we flee;
And he who would the Father seek
Must seek Him, Lord, by Thee.
|2||Thou art the Truth, Thy Word alone
True wisdom can impart;
Thou only canst inform the mind,
And purify the heart.
|3||Thou art the Life, the rending tomb
Proclaims Thy conquering arm:
And those who put their trust in Thee
Nor death nor hell shall harm.
|4||Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life;
Grant us that Way to know,
That Truth to keep, that Life to win
Whose joys eternal flow.
|George Washington Doane, 1799-1859|
