How confused are you in life

You are the way, the truth and the life

Text: Christoph Zehender 1990, melody: Johannes Nitsch 1990, organ and composition: Stefan Horz

Way ”,“ Truth ”and“ Life ”is a triad that Jesus proposes to us. He explains to us that the only way to life is through truth. Falsehood leads to ruin. And that the path to truth only leads through life. Life alone determines what is true.

This triad is the chord of God: Father (truth), Son (way) and Holy Spirit (life).

This song is made from this chord.

Ref: You are the way, the truth and the life
You are the light for those who trust.
You want to guide him and give him real life
eternal life as your word promises.
You want to guide him and give him real life

And when he comes to you, you really fill him up.

You set him free when he dares a life with you.

Accompany him home so that he doesn't get lost.
