I am the way, the truth, and the life.@John 14:6

H. O. Devah, in Praises, edited by Edwin O. Excell (Chicago, Illinois: E. O. Excell, 1905), number 14.

William E. Marks (🔊 pdf nwc).

I have a friend—you ought to know Him,
He is a Savior tender and true;
Jesus, my king—how I adore Him!
And He should be as precious to you.

Refrain

I have a friend—you ought to know Him,
Will you receive His greeting today?
Waiting He stands, tenderly pleading:
I am the Life, the Truth, and the Way.

I have a friend—you ought to know Him,
He is a faithful shepherd and guide;
Sorrow He shares, burdens He lightens,
Ev’ry good thing by Him is supplied.

Refrain

I have a friend—you ought to know Him,
Will you not let Him enter your heart?
Peace He will give you without measure,
Blessing untold, that will not depart.

Refrain
