Be Ye Also Ready, #24

Lyrics

Verse 1
Are you ready, are you ready for the coming of the Lord?
Are you living as He bids you in His word?
Are you walking in the light?
Is you hope of heaven bright?
Could you welcome Him to-night?
Are you ready?

Chorus
Therefore be ye also ready, be ye also ready,
therefore be ye also ready, be ye also ready,
for in such an hour, such an hour as ye think not,
the Son of man cometh.

Verse 2
Are you waiting, are you waiting for the coming of the King?
Have you bundles of the golden grain to bring?
Can you lay at Jesus’ feet
Any gather’d sheaves of wheat,
There your blessed Lord to greet?
Are you ready?

Verse 3
Have you risen, have you risen from the heavy midnight sleep?
Have you risen from you slumber long and deep?
Are your garments wash’d from sin,
Are you cleansed and pure within?
Are you ready for the King?
Are you ready?
