Hymnary Friends,

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.
Harry Plantinga

Representative Text

1 Are you ready? Are you ready?
If the Son of man should come?
Would you hear His commendation,
In those blessed words, “Well done?’
For He says that He is coming,
On His awful throne of state;
O how blest will be that servant
Who doth for His coming wait!

Are you ready? Are you ready?
With a lamp that’s burning bright?
Be ye ready! Be ye ready!
For—perhaps He’ll come tonight.

2 Have you listened to His counsel
And obeyed His gracious word?
Are your loins all girded ready
To go out to meet the Lord?
If He came, would He now find you,
With a lamp that’s burning bright?
Would you gladly hear the summons
If He called for you tonight? [Refrain]

3 Would He gird Himself and bid you
With His faithful ones sit down?
Would He deign, Himself, to deck you
With a glitt’ring, fadeless crown?
Since you know not when He’s coming,—
With your lamp well filled and bright,
Be ye ready for His presence,
For the Lord may come tonight. [Refrain]
