Opening Words

Opening Hymn

“Come, My Way, My Truth, My Life”
#89 in Singing the Living Tradition
Words by George Herbert
Music by Ralph Vaughan Williams
Led by David Klotz

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 a 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.

Be ours now, and in all the days to come.
