O where can truth be found to­day?
And where does wis­dom hide?
O who to life’s mys­ter­ies holds the key?
O where does the know­ing heart abide?

From iv­ory tow­ers, phi­lo­so­phies fair,
From or­a­cles of a day,
In halls of the learn­èd, in pal­ac­es strong,
Do ques­tion­ers seek to learn the Way.

They tra­vel to and fro, and run
To far off lands and lore;
With un­hear­ing ears, they do not per­ceive
That truth is knock­ing at the door.

I am the way, the truth, and the life.
Respond to Je­sus’ call,
And op­en the door to truth and light:
In Him is no dark­ness at all.

Let Je­sus have your heart to­day,
He peace and love will be­stow;
On Christ the Rock of truth now stand,
From whence do wis­dom’s wa­ters flow.
