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 killeth death.
These words are the first stanza of a poem by George Herbert (1593-1633). See the complete poem and a short essay about George Herbert on the Journey with Jesus website (one of my favorites sites for inspiration). The Episcopal Church remembers and commemorates George Herbert annually on February 27th.

Hymn 487 in (The Episcopal) Hymnal 1982 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 killeth 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 can move; such a love as none can part; such a heart as joys in love. Text: George Herbert Music: The Call by Ralph Vaughn Williams
