Our nourishment

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth and the life”
(John 14:6; NLT).

1. Lord,
You are our guiding star,
Our shepherd’s staff,
Our way.

2. Lord,
You are our nourishment,
Our bread, our truth
Each day.

3. Lord,
You are our sacrifice,
Our great High Priest,
Our life.

4. Lord,
You are our Mighty God,
Our Saviour,
And our light.
