Thou art the Way; to Thee alone,
From Sin, and Death, we flee;
And he, who would the Father seek,
Must seek him, Lord, by Thee.
Thou art the Truth; Thy word alone,
True wisdom, can impart;
Thou only canst inform the mind,
And purify the heart.
Thou art the Life; the rending tomb,
Proclaims Thy conquering arm,
And those who put their trust in Thee,
Nor death, nor hell, shall harm.
Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life;
Grant us, that Way to know,
That Truth, to keep; that Life, to win;
Whose joys, eternal flow.
* Since inserted among the hymns in the Prayer Book. A few nights before Bp. White died, as my Father was watching at his bedside, he asked him to read this hymn.
