J's Journal:
This song is based on Jesus' words at the Last Supper in John 13-17, the title and chorus comes from John 14:2-3, when Jesus says, "In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." Later in that same discourse (John 15:13-15a), Jesus says, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends." Since He used the word "friends" in three consecutive verses, it seemed appropriate that we use a song that was also used as the theme for the television show "Friends."

I'll Prepare for You
Parody of "I'll Be There for You" by The Rembrandts
(John 14)

So Jesus told His disciples, I'm gonna go away
But where I go you know. They all cried, Please explain.
He said, You've all been stuck in second grade
If you haven't seen the Way, the Truth, the Life is here in your face ... but
I'll prepare for you ... prepare a place up above
I'll prepare for you ... 'cause I've been there before
I'll prepare for you ... and you prepare for me, too.
I'll send another friend to help you on your way
You'll learn from Him, you'll go far. Please don't be afraid
The Father helped me do the things I did
But you even will do greater works than that if you believe -- that
The world could never know Him -- The world could not receive Him
So you're the only ones who know what it's like to know Him
There'll come a place and day when He'll come to live inside you
Soon when all of this happens you will know the words I said were true.
Seems like you've all been stuck in second grade
If you haven't seen the Way, the Truth, the Life is here in your face, but
