661. You Are the Way

1 You are the way; to you alone
from sin and death we flee;
and those who would the Father seek
your followers must be.

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 rending tomb
proclaims your conqu'ring arm;
and those who put their trust in you
not death nor hell shall harm.

4 You are the way, the truth, the life;
grant us that way to know;
that truth to keep, that life to win,
whose joys eternal flow.
