1 Like wand’ring sheep o’er mountains cold,
Since all have gone astray;
To “Life” and peace within the fold,
How may I find the way?

Refrain:
I am the way, the Truth, and the Life;
No man cometh unto the Father but by me.
I am the way, the truth, and the life;
No man cometh unto the Father but by me.

2 Bewildered oft with doubt and care,
To God I fain would go;
But while they cry, “Lo here! lo there!”
The Truth how may I know? [Refrain]

3 To Christ the Way, the Truth, the Life,
I come, no more to roam;
He’ll guide me to my “Father’s house,”
To my eternal home. [Refrain]
