“Let not your hearts be troubled or cast down;
You trust in God, trust in the Son also.
My Fa­ther’s house is filled with many rooms;
If it weren’t so, I would have let you know.

“I go away to make a place for you;
And if I go, I will for you return.
I’ll take you there so you can be with Me;
You know the way—just follow Me and learn.

“I am the only way, the truth, the life;
None comes to God unless he comes through Me.
If you know Me, you’ll know My Fa­ther, too;
I am in Him, and He abides in Me.

“These words I speak, they are not just My own;
God is the one who does His work through Me.
Believe that I am in My Fa­ther God,
Or just believe the miracles you see.

“If you have faith, you’ll do what I have done;
I tell the truth, e’en greater things you’ll do.
You’ll do these things because I go to God;
Thus it is good I go away from you.

I will do anything you ask of Me,
So that the Son to God may glo­ry bring.
Ask in My name, ask anything you please;
You need but ask, and I will do each thing.
