THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE

(John 14:6)

"I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE,"
What more does man want or man need?
"No man can come to the Father,"
He said, "Unless he comes by me."

Man saw the WAY, and the WAY was right,
And, "I am the WAY," the Lord said,
Some men agreed to accept His WAY,
And to follow wherever it led.

It led to the TRUTH, and the TRUTH was GOD,
And, "I am the TRUTH," the Lord said,
Apart from Him, no TRUTH, no trust,
And to a new LIFE man was led.

Man now to have Eternal LIFE,
And, "I am the LIFE," The Lord said,
"Come to the Father; come by me,"
No death, but LIFE instead.

He was the WORD, and the WORD was GOD,
And He was the LIGHT from above,
The WORD and the LIGHT, and the WAY and the LIFE,
Are the TRUTH, which is GOD, which is LOVE.
