I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.@John 14:6

George Smith, circa 1835. Smith wrote these words while serving a pastorate in Plymouth, England.

Galena, in The Sabbath Hymn and Tune Book, edited by Lowell Mason, Edwards A. Park & Austin Phelps (New York: Mason Brothers, 1859), page 273 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Thou art, O Christ, the way:
Thyself reveal to me;
And let me humbly, day by day,
Live, move and walk in Thee.

Thou art the truth divine:
Its fullness may I see;
Believe, and find the promise mine—
The truth shall make you free.

Thou art the life of God;
By Thee the dying live:
In me diffuse Thyself abroad,
And life eternal give.

Thus, by Thyself, the Way,
I to the Father come;
Led by the Truth, I cannot stray:
The Life and I are one.
