I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life,

Joh. 14. 6.

Via in exemplo, veritas in promisso, vita in præmio.

Christ is the Way, which leads to heavens joy.
He is the Truth, which errours can destroy:
He is the Life, which raiseth up the dead,
He is the Way, Truth, Life unlimited:
The way is narrow, strive to enter in,
The Truth is pure to clense our souls from sin,
Ift we do walk this Way, this Truth maintain,
Eernal life is ours, exempt from pain;
This is the Way without all rubs of grief,
This is the Truth which claims a just belief:
Here is the Life which conquer'd death and sin,
Truth, Life is ours, if we the way be in:


The Truth informs us, and the Way doth gulde;
The Life rewards us, if we constant bide.
Follow this Way; embrace this Truth; desire
This Life, the crown of Saints in Heavens quire.
