Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to
support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.
Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most
complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not
come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold
a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.
So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even
small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.
Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your
tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE,
Grand Rapids, MI 49546.
On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
1 Are you ready for His coming, friend?
He is coming by and by;
For he said he would not tarry long
In his Father’s house on high.
Are you ready should he come for you?
Ready now with him on high to go?
Are you watching, are you praying still?
Are your garments white as snow?
2 Are you ready for His coming, friend?
Are your garments clean and white?
Will you gladly greet the Bridegroom now?
He may come for you tonight. [Refrain]
3 He will come in all his glory bright,
As upon the mount he stood;
Can you sing the glad hosanna loud,
I am washed in Jesus blood? [Refrain]
4 Oh, the day draws nearer, nearer still,
When the saints he will redeem;
Now the light of morn is breaking fast,
We can see its golden beam. [Refrain]
5 Yes, we’re ready for his coming now
And we watch, and wait, and pray,
For the day to dawn in glory bright,
And the night to roll away. [Refrain]
6 We are ready should he come for us,
Ready now in peace to go;
We are watching, and we’re waiting still,
With our robes as white as snow. [Refrain]Source: On Joyful Wing : A Book of Praise and Song #90
