130 (S.M.) Joseph Hart

"I Am," saith Christ, "the Way:"

Now, if we credit Him,

All other paths must lead astray,

How fair soe'er they seem.

"I am," saith Christ, "the Truth:"

Then all that lacks this test,

Proceed it from an angel's mouth,

Is but a lie at best.

"I Am," saith Christ, "the Life:"

Let this be seen by faith;

It follows, without further strife,

That all besides is death.

If what those words aver,

The Holy Ghost apply,

The simplest Christian shall not err,

Nor be deceived, nor die.
