Knowing his time soon would end they gathered round their Lord and friend - He said
"Let not your heart be troubled - ye believe in God, believe in me
I go now to prepare a place, and where I go ye know the way"- but still one would say
"How can we know the way we should go..." He said

"I am the way, the truth, the life. No man comes to the Father but by Me.
Have ye not seen The Father's works and words in me?
Now go, I beg of you, and do as ye have seen Me do-
for the world will not see me, but I'll manifest myself to thee" -and still one would say
"how can we know- and how wilt Thou show thyself?"

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,
whom the Father will send in my name,
he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you." (John14:26)

At the day of Pentecost,were they not pricked in their hearts
with love, joy, gentleness, patience, faith and temperance
did Paul not understand, how God reveals himself to man
that no man calls Jesus Lord, but by the Holy Ghost

that was all so long ago,
some say now the heavens have closed
but nowhere do I read of an end of revelation from our friend and Lord
only promises of comfort, wisdom, peace and answers
and still so many say -

"how can we know? And not be tossed to and fro..
by every wind of doctrine, the cunning craftiness of man
false prophets selling salvation, wolves dressed as lambs.."
deeper than the eyes and ears, His Spirit penetrates
and what He whispers to our hearts, no man can take away

and I know we can know the way we should go
for His Spirit brings the truth of all things
