John 14:1–6 (Listen)

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

14:1 “Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God;1 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?2 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.”3 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.

Hymn: TLH 355: Thou Art the Way; To Thee Alone

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


1. 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. 

2. Thou art the Truth; Thy Word alone 
True wisdom can impart; 
Thou only canst inform the mind 
And purify the heart. 

3. 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. 

4. 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.
