1. Come, my Way, my Truth, my Life:
 such a way as gives us breath;
 such a truth as ends all strife;
 such a life as kill -- eth death.

2. Come, my Light, my Feast, my Strength:
 such a light as shows a feast;
 such a feast as mends in length;
 such a strength as makes his guest.

3. Come, my Joy, my Love, my Heart:
 such a joy as none came move;
 such a love as none can part;
 such a heart as joys in love.
