Let not your heart be troubled: Ye 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 unto myself; that where I am, There ye may be also.
…And when the dawn comes you will not be lonely anymore.
