1 I am the way, the truth, the life;
Just follow Me and leave your strife.
I am this dark world’s only light;
Can you not trust in Me?

When you’re afraid, just trust in Me.
When your hopes fade, just trust in Me.
When prayers you’ve made have been delayed,
Don’t be dismayed—just trust in Me.

2 I’m the good shepherd of the sheep,
The door to guard you from the thief.
Your highest good I always seek,
Can you not trust in Me? [Refrain]

3 The bread of life—come eat and see,
My strength each day is yours for free.
I am the vine; remain in Me;
Can you not trust in Me? [Refrain]

4 I am the resurrection, too;
I bring eternal life to you.
Your cares on earth are but a few;
Can you not trust in Me? [Refrain]
