In this pathless waste

 

Lord,
In this pathless waste   
Each weary day,

You are the gate, 
The shepherd, 
And the way.

Lord,
Through the lonely darkness 
Of each night,

You are the Christ,
The Son of God,
The light.

Lord,
On this hungry earth
We crave a sign.

You are the bread,
The water,
And the wine.

Lord, 
In this evil world,
Where death runs rife,

You are the 
Resurrection,
And the life.
