John 14:1-7 (Listen)

I Am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life

14:1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. And you know the way to where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we do not know where you are going. How can we know the way?” Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. From now on you do know him and have seen him.” (ESV)

Hymn : TLH 437 : Who Trusts in God, a Strong Abode Hymnary.org link

1. Who trusts in God a strong abode 
In heaven and earth possesses; 
Who looks in love to Christ above, 
No fear his heart oppresses. 
In Thee alone, dear Lord, we own 
Sweet hope and consolation, 
Our Shield from foes, our Balm for woes, 
Our great and sure Salvation. 

2. Though Satan’s wrath beset our path 
And worldly scorn assail us, 
While Thou art near, we will not fear; 
Thy strength shall never fail us. 
Thy rod and staff shall keep us safe 
And guide our steps forever; 
Nor shades of death nor hell beneath 
Our souls from Thee shall sever. 

3. In all the strife of mortal life 
Our feet shall stand securely; 
Temptation’s hour shall lose its power, 
For Thou shalt guard us surely. 
O God, renew with heavenly dew 
Our body, soul, and spirit 
Until we stand at Thy right hand 
Through Jesus’ saving merit.
