Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,
Harry Plantinga

1 Are you ready, friend, to meet Him
Who has done so much for you?
Are you ready, friend, to greet Him
When He comes and calls for you?
Life is short, and time is passing,
Never to return again;
All around us they are going
From among the sons of men.

Refrain:
Are you ready, are you ready,
When He comes to gather all His children home?
Are your lamps all trimmed and burning,
Do you wait your Lord’s returning?
Are you ready for the Bridegroom when He comes?

2 Are you ready, friend, to meet Him?
Are your treasures all above?
Are you ready, friend, to greet Him
Who is Truth, and Life, and Love?
Is your lamp all trimmed and burning
With a clear and certain glow?
All around us they are going;
Are you ready, friend, to go? [Refrain]

3 Are you ready, friend, to meet Him
Should He call for you tonight?
Are you ready, friend, to greet Him
Should He come in morning light?
Have you lived for Christ, the Savior—
Lived an earnest life and true?
All around us they are going;
Soon He’ll come and call for you. [Refrain]
