441. You Are the Way

1 You are the Way: in you alone
From sin and death we rise:
Without your grace we nothing are,
In you all goodness lies,
In you all goodness lies.

2 You are the Truth: your Word alone
Full wisdom can impart;
Your Word alone transforms the mind
And purifies the heart,
And purifies the heart.

3 You are the Life: the empty tomb
Proclaims your victory.
And those who put their trust in you
Shall evermore be free,
Shall evermore be free.

4 You are the Way, the Truth, the Life:
Grant us that Way to see,
That Truth to keep, that Life to live,
That we your friends may be.
That we your friends may be.
