     1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 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. 3 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.

     4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. 5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? 6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. 7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. 8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. 9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, shew us the Father? 10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.(KJV)

On Christ’s Ascension I Now Build

1. On Christ’s ascension I now build 
The hope of my ascension; 
This hope alone has always stilled 
All doubt and apprehension; 
For where the head is, there as well 
I know his members are to dwell 
When Christ will come and call them. 

2. Since Christ returned to claim his throne, 
Great gifts for me obtaining, 
My heart will rest in him alone, 
No other rest remaining; 
For where my treasure went before, 
There all my thoughts will ever soar 
To still their deepest yearning. 

3. Oh, grant, dear Lord, this grace to me, 
Recalling your ascension, 
That I may serve you faithfully, 
Adorning your redemption; 
And then, when all my days will cease, 
Let me depart in joy and peace 
In answer to my pleading.
