Thou art the Way
Thou art the way: to Thee alone
from sin and death we flee;
and he who would the Father seek
must seek Him, Lord, by Thee.
Thou art the truth: Thy Word alone
true wisdom can impart;
Thou only canst inform the mind,
and purify the heart.
Thou art the life: the rending tomb
proclaims Thy conquering arm,
and those who put their trust in Thee
nor death nor hell shall harm.
Thou art the way, the truth, the life;
grant us that way to know,
that truth to keep, that life to win,
whose joys eternal flow.
Now Thank we all our God
Now thank we all our God, with hearts, and hands, and voices,
who wondrous things has done, in whom His world rejoices;
Who, from our mothers’ arms, hath blessed us on our way
with countless gifts of love, and still is ours today.
O may this bounteous God through all our life be near us,
with ever-joyful hearts and blessed peace to cheer us;
and keep us in His grace, and guide us when perplexed;
and free us from all ills in this world and the next.
All praise and thanks to God the Father now be given,
the Son, and Him who reigns with Them in highest heaven;
the one eternal God, whom heaven and earth adore;
for thus it was, is now, and shall be evermore.
