Like wandering sheep o’er mountains cold,
Since all have gone astray;
To life and peace within the fold,
How may I find the way?

Refrain

I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life;
No man cometh unto the Father but by Me.
I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life;
No man cometh unto the Father but by Me.

Bewildered oft with doubt and care,
To God I fain would go;
While many cry Lo here! Lo there!
The truth how may I know?

Refrain

To Christ the Way, the Truth, the Life,
I come, no more to roam;
He’ll guide me to my Father’s house,
To my eternal home.

Refrain
