77. I Want to be Ready to Go

1 I want to be ready when Jesus comes back,
The moment tho’ I may not know,
I want to have oil in my vessel that day,
I want to be ready to go.

Refrain:
I want to be ready to go,
I want to be ready to go,
The day of His coming, tho’ I may not know,
I want to be ready to go.

2 I want to be ready to join the glad throng,
With robes washed in Calvary’s flow,
When Jesus shall come back to gather His saints,
I want to be ready to go. [Refrain]

3 I know He’ll not wait on me when He returns,
No favors He then will bestow,
Excepting all those who were watching for Him,
I want to be ready to go. [Refrain]

4 I’ve loved ones who’ve crossed over death’s mystic tide,
But they will arise then I know,
When Jesus comes back we will stand by His side,
I want to be ready to go. [Refrain]

5 Lord, help me to keep my lamp trimmed, burning bright
In this world of sin and of woe,
So when Thou dost come, if at morn, noon, or night,
You’ll find me all ready to go. [Refrain]
