5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? 6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.

     7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. 12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. 13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. 15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

     16 A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.(KJV)

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.
