Representative Text

1 You are the way; thro' you alone

you only can inform the mind
and purify the heart.

3 You are the life; the empty tomb
proclaims your conqu'ring arm,
and those who put their trust in you
nor 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.
