“Let not your hearts be troubled;
You believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father’s house are many mansions:
If it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go to prepare a place for you,
I will come again, and receive you unto myself;
that where I am, there you may be also.”
