Let not Your Heart be Troubled Lyrics
"Let not your hearts be troubled or cast down;
You trust in God, trust in the Son also.
My Father's house is filled with many rooms;
If it weren't so, I would have let you know.
"I go away to make a place for you;
And if I go, I will for you return.
I'll take you there so you can be with Me;
You know the way—just follow Me and learn.
"I am the only way, the truth, the life;
None comes to God unless he comes through Me.
If you know Me, you'll know My Father, too;
I am in Him, and He abides in Me.
"These words I speak, they are not just My own;
God is the one who does His work through Me.
Believe that I am in My Father God,
Or just believe the miracles you see.
"If you have faith, you'll do what I have done;
I tell the truth, e'en greater things you'll do.
You'll do these things because I go to God;
Thus it is good I go away from you.
"I will do anything you ask of Me,
So that the Son to God may glory bring.
Ask in My name, ask anything you please;
You need but ask, and I will do each thing."
