You are the God who made this world,
You are the truth that all may find,
You are the touch which heals our wounds,
The source of life for humankind.

You are the hope that we proclaim,
You are the path we choose to tread,
And if we hunger on the way,
You are the food by which we’re fed.

You are the love that knows no end,
You are the perfect sacrifice,
For broken lives weighed down by sin,
You are the One who paid the price.

You are the joy that fills our heart,
You are the comfort in our pain,
And as we lay all else aside.
For all we lose you are our gain.
