The Way, the Truth, The Life

I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
John 14:6
 
This verse is included in this week's appointed gospel reading, so I'm posting a couple of particularly beautiful prayers based on John 14:6...

    Thou art the Way
Hadst thou been nothing but the goal
    I cannot say
If thou hadst ever met my soul.
    I cannot see—
I, child of process—if there lies
    An end for me
Full of repose, full of replies.
    I'll not reproach
The road that winds, my feet that err.
    Access, Approach
Art thou, Time, Way, and Wayfarer.
Alice Maxwell (1847-1922)
 
Lord Jesus Christ, the Way by which we travel:
Show me thyself, the truth that we must walk in;
and be in me the Life that lifts us up to God, our journey's ending.
 
Frederick B. Macnutt (1873-1949)
