23 Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He that loveth me not keepeth not my sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.

     25 These things have I spoken unto you, being yet present with you. 26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

     28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.(KJV)

1. Lord, Thee I love with all my heart; 
I pray Thee ne’er from me depart, 
With tender mercies cheer me. 
Earth has no pleasure I would share, 
Yea, heaven itself were void and bare 
If Thou, Lord, wert not near me. 
And should my heart for sorrow break, 
My trust in Thee no one could shake. 
Thou art the Portion I have sought; 
Thy precious blood my soul has bought. 
Lord Jesus Christ, 
My God and Lord, my God and Lord, 
Forsake me not! I trust Thy Word. 

2. Yea, Lord, ’twas Thy rich bounty gave 
My body, soul, and all I have 
In this poor life of labor. 
Lord, grant that I in every place 
May glorify Thy lavish grace 
And serve and help my neighbor. 
Let no false doctrine me beguile 
And Satan not my soul defile. 
Give strength and patience unto me 
To bear my cross and follow Thee. 
Lord Jesus Christ, 
My God and Lord, my God and Lord, 
In death Thy comfort still afford. 

3. Lord, let at last Thine angels come, 
To Abram’s bosom bear me home, 
That I may die unfearing; 
And in its narrow chamber keep 
My body safe in peaceful sleep 
Until Thy reappearing. 
And then from death awaken me 
That these mine eyes with joy may see, 
O Son of God, Thy glorious face, 
My Savior and my Fount of grace, 
Lord Jesus Christ, 
My prayer attend, my prayer attend, 
And I will praise Thee without end.
