I Am The Way, The Truth, And The Life

The Last Supper of Jesus by Andre Derain
The Last Supper of Jesus
by Andre Derain

.
“Having loved his own…He loved them until the end.”

The hour has come
I gather them
To a room, to a table
To my heart

I know Father
Has put all things
Under my feet
I wash theirs

I pour wine
Break bread
We drink, feast
Recount stories of old

We remember
Father’s faithfulness
Seas parted, slaves freed
Lambs slain

Where I am going
They cannot come
Only I can, must
Drink of this cup

They don’t understand
Their hearts, minds
Still earthbound
And troubled

How can I explain?

I must leave
But you will follow
If it were not so
I would have told you

Father’s house
Has many rooms
I will prepare a place
Just for you

How will you know the way?

I am the Way
My body, my blood
No one comes to Father
Except through me

I am the Truth
No shadow of turning
All that is good and pure
Comes from me

I am the Life
Joy inexpressible
Awaits those
Hidden in me
