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
