Thou Art the Way

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.

Thou art the Truth: Thy word alone
True wisdom can impart;
Thou only canst inform the mind
And purify the heart.

Thou art the Life: the rending tomb
Proclaims Thy conquering arms;
And those who put their trust in Thee,
Nor death nor hell shall harm.

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 W. Doane

Copied from my grandmother’s hymnal, Hymn Book, Methodist Episcopal Church, South: Nashville, TN, 1901, Hymn #81.

Jesus saith unto him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.”

John 14:6

Note: The hymns in this hymnal are not titled. So when I do not know the hymn, I make up a title or simply use the first line.
