Text

Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:

Such a way as gives us breath;

Such a truth as ends all strife,

Such a life as killeth death.

Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength:

Such a light as shows a feast,

Such a feast as mends in length,

Such a strength as makes his guest.
Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:


Such a joy as none can move,

Such a love as none can part,

Such a heart as joys in love
