Jesus is the way, the way that leads to God;
If we follow in His footsteps
The path that He has trod,
He will lead us in the way of peace and love,
And safely bring us to Him
In our home prepared above.


Oh, Jesus is the Way,
The Truth and the Life,
He bids us come to Him and rest;
He bids us share with Him,
Free from toil and strife,
A home in the land of the blest.

Jesus is the Truth, the truth that makes us free;
Free from sickness, sin and sorrow,
Thro’ all eternity.
He will guide us safely in the narrow way,
And keep us on our journey
To the land of endless day.


Jesus is the Life, eternal life He gives;
His Spirit bears us witness
That our risen Savior lives;
If we love and serve Him in this world of woe,
He’ll keep us by His grace
And love to conquer every foe.
