Words by George Herbert (1593-1630), a poet and priest of the Church of England

Hymn Source = The Hymnal 1982, of The Episcopal Church


1.  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.

2.  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.

3.  Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:

such joy as none can move;

such a love as none can part;

such a heart as joys in love.
