John 14:6
"Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life:"

divider

          I sought a flag to follow
          A cause for which to stand,
          I sought a valiant leader
          Who could my love command;
          I sought a stirring challenge,
          Some noble work to try,
          To give my life fulfillment,
          My dreams to satisfy.

            Chorus
            I found them all in Jesus,
            The Life, the Truth, the Way;
            Beneath His flag I'll take my stand
            And follow Him today.

          I sought a ringing answer
          For all my doubts inside
          A torch of truth uplifted
          My searching steps to guide;
          I sought a word of wisdom,
          A true authority.
          I sought to know life's purpose,
          To solve its mystery.

            Chorus
            I found them all in Jesus,
            The Life, the Truth, the Way;
            Beneath His flag I'll take my stand
            And follow Him today.

          I sought for satisfaction
          For yearning deep within,
          I sought for full deliv'rance
          From chains of guilt and sin;
          I sought for peace and pardon,
          For freedom from my fears,
          I sought a hope to cling to
          Beyond these passing years.

            Chorus
            I found them all in Jesus,
            The Life, the Truth, the Way;
            Beneath His flag I'll take my stand
            And follow Him today.
