Thou Art the Way; To Thee Alone - 355

"Thou Art the Way; to Thee Alone"
by George W. Doane, 1799-1859

1. Thou art the Way; to Thee alone
From sin and death we flee;
And he who would the Gather seek
Must seek Him, Lord, by Thee.

2. Thou art the Truth; Thy Word alone
True wisdom can impart;
Thou only canst inform the mind
And purify the heart.

3. 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.

4. Thou art the Way, the Truth, the Life;
Grant us that Way to know,
That Truth to keep, that life Life to win,
Whose joys eternal flow.
