THE GREAT I AM

The Bread of Life am I
And I will hear you cry
Lift your hearts and live
Eternal life I give

The Light of the World am I
And darkness will leave the sky
Take my hand, believe
I will never deceive

Before Abraham was I Am That I Am
I formed this great planet and shaped Woman and Man
And, still, I'm creating more things in my plan
Remember to listen, reply if you can

I am the Good Shepherd, I feed my sheep
Laid down my life so that safely they sleep
And I lift them up from the mire dark and deep
Yes, I know my lambs and I hear each one weep

I am the Door and if you enter in
You shall be saved and be cleansed from sin
There is no other true way to receive
Life everlasting--on me just believe

I am the Resurrection, I am the Life
He that believes in me shall overcome strife
Yes, he shall live even though he were dead
No longer hell-bound, but heaven instead

I am the Life, I'm the Truth, I'm the way
These my commandments be sure to obey
Do unto your brother as you'd have him do to you
Love one another as I have loved you

The Wine of Truth am I
And I will prophecy
Through the Word you are clean
Let your fruits be seen
