41. I Want to Be Ready

Refrain:
I want to be ready,
I want to be ready,
I want to be ready to walk in Jerusalem just like John.

1 John said the city was four-square,
walk in Jerusalem just like John,
I know, good Lord, I'll meet you there,
walk in Jerusalem just like John. [Refrain]

2 When Peter was preaching at Pentecost,
walk in Jerusalem just like John.
oh, he was filled with the Holy Ghost,
walk in Jerusalem just like John. [Refrain]
