How many different ways, could I possibly explain?
And paint the same picture, with words that are plain?
You’ve marvelled at the signs, and you’ve come back to see miracles,
But still don’t understand the simple message at the pinnacle.
First things first, I AM the bread of life,
Feast up on my words, and be forever satisfied,
The thing you’ve been chasing, is just a façade,
It won’t satisfy your thirst, like a mirage.
Do not be afraid, I’m the light of the world,
The darkness will flee, as my light is unfurled,
Showing you the pathway, even through the valley of death,
I’m still there, your every prayer I have heard.
I AM the good shepherd, through good times or strife,
For the sake of my sheep, I would lay down my life,
All because of love, I was battered and bruised,
Inspired by my love, for both Gentiles and Jews.
So come into my presence, for I’m the only door,
And leave behind your baggage, and wonder no more,
Salvation is promised, to all who will enter,
Life to the fullest, with me at the centre.
I AM the only way, the truth and the life,
All other pathways, will lead you to strife,
The world offers hope, that is built in the sand,
But mine to the end, is the rock that will stand,
I AM the resurrection, and I AM the life,
I speak into darkness; and give it new life,
I raised up Lazarus, and set him free,
To show God’s power, ingrained in me,
I AM the true vine; the gardener’s the Father,
He prunes and perfects, for his glory, and honour,
I AM that I AM, before time began,
Of all you have heard, who do you say I am?
