363. You are the way, to You alone

1 You are the way, to You alone
from sin and death we run;
and those who would the Father seek
must see Him through the Son.

2 You art the truth, Your Word alone
true wisdom can impart:
You only can inform the mind
and purify the heart.

3 You are the life, the empty tomb
proclaims Your conquering arm:
and those who put their trust in You
nor death nor hell shall harm.

4 You are the Way, the Truth, the Life:
grant us that way to see,
that truth to keep, that life to know
through all eternity.
