The Way through strife and sin to bliss,
Dear Truth we kiss as faithful wife,
Our new-born Life in death's abyss.
Christ is our Prophet, Priest, and King:
A Prophet's spring of cleansing grace,
High Priest to place our offering,
The righteous King of all our race.
Christ is the Son, the Word, the Lamb:
Both Son of Man and God, who gave
His Word to save and not to damn,
A slaughtered Lamb to end the grave.
Christ is our Joy, our Light, our Peace:
Our Joy's increase until complete,
A Light most sweet that will not cease,
The Prince of Peace we hail and greet.
O Christ, our Healer, Savior, Lord:
Christ, Healer for deaf, blind, and dumb,
Christ, Savior from the demon horde,
Be praised, O Lord-of-lords to come!
