I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me. John 14:6
Words: T. J. Wilson, in Song-Land Messenger No. 2, edited by Anthony J. Showalter, John S. Hendricks et al. (Dallas, Texas & Dalton, Georgia: Showalter-Lincoln & A. J. Showalter, 1898), number 73, alt.
If you know Wilson or Allen’s full name, or where to get good photos of them (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you ?
Oh Lord, my life, my way,
Help me in Thee to see
Complete redemption from all sin,
And full salvation free.
Thy mercy to me show,
Thy grace to me impart,
And melt and change by love divine,
This hard and stony heart.
And then show forth in me,
Thine image all divine;
Oh, take this wandering, fainting heart
And seal it ever Thine.
Then guide me to the land
Of everlasting rest,
Until I reach the golden strand
And be forever blest.
