Lent devotions 2011: Tuesday 29 March

So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed in him, ‘If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. — John 8:31-2

Follow God’s teaching, learn the truth,
And the truth will set you free.
This lesson is for everyone,
For folk like you and me.

From Abraham’s descendants,
Right up to modern man
Living in truth, freedom and love
Is God’s almighty plan.

Lord help us to relate to others
The way, the truth, the life
Help us treat men as brothers
Steer us from wrong and strife.

And when at last we meet with You
Upon the Judgement Day
May we all with hand on heart
Say ‘Lord we kept Your way.’
