The Life, the Truth, the Way

Representative Text

1 Do we want to go to heav'n
Land of endless day?
Here's the light that He has given
Jesus is the Way.

Jesus is the Way,
The Truth and the Life;
He will bring us safely
Home to God.

2 Would we grace and wisdom find
In our early youth?
Let the Savior guide our minds,
Jesus is the Truth. [Chorus]

3 Would we live eernally,
Far from sin and strife?
Christ from death can set us free--
Jesus is the Life. [Chorus]
