 Tune: O SO SO

You Are the Way 

1      You are the way; to you alone 

        from sin and death we flee; 

        all those who search for God, you find 

        and by your grace set free. 

2      You are 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.

Verse 1

Loving Spirit, loving Spirit, you have chosen me to be-

You have drawn me to your wonder, you have set your sign on me.

 

Verse 2

Like a mother you enfold me, hold my life within your own,

Feed me with your very body, form me of your flesh and bone.

 

Verse 3

Like a father you protect me, teach me the discerning eye,

Hoist me up upon your shoulder, let me see the world from high.

 

Verse 4

Friend and lover, in your closeness I am known and held and blessed:

In your promise is my comfort, in your presence I may rest. (Repeat Verse 1)
