Psalm 122:1 I was glad when they said unto me, let us go unto the house of the Lord.
St. John 14:1-3 Let not your heart be troubled; yea 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; and that where I am there ye may be also.
