Lyrics

O Christ, the way, the truth, the life,
Show me the living way,
That in the tumult and the strife,
I may not go astray.

Teach me Thy truth, O Christ, my light,
The truth that makes me free
That in the darkness and the night,
My trust shall be in Thee.

The life that Thou alone canst give,
Impart in love to me,
That I may in Thy presence live,
And ever be like Thee.
