John 14:1-3
“Let not your heart 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 and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”

Hymn: TLH 613: Jerusalem, the Golden

Hymnary.org Organ Audio

1. Jerusalem the golden, 
With milk and honey blest, 
Beneath thy contemplation 
Sink heart and voice opprest. 
I know not, oh, I know not, 
What joys await us there, 
What radiancy of glory, 
What bliss beyond compare. 

2. They stand, those halls of Zion, 
All jubilant with song 
And bright with many an angel 
And all the martyr throng. 
The Prince is ever in them; 
The daylight is serene; 
The pastures of the blessed 
Are decked in glorious sheen. 

3. There is the throne of David; 
And there, from care released, 
The shout of them that triumph, 
The song of them that feast; 
And they who with their Leader 
Have conquered in the fight 
Forever and forever 
Are clad in robes of white. 

4. O sweet and blessed country, 
The home of God’s elect! 
O sweet and blessed country 
That eager hearts expect! 
Jesus, in mercy bring us 
To that dear land of rest, 
Who art, with God the Father 
And Spirit, ever blest.
