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 should the Bridegroom come?
Are you ready should the Bridegroom come?
If he come at noon or night
Will it fill you with delight,
Or will you deplore the sight,
If he comes?

Refrain:
If he comes, if he comes,
Are you ready, watching, waiting, if he comes?
If he comes, if he comes,
Are you ready if the Bridegroom comes?

2 Are you ready should the Bridegroom come?
Are you ready should the Bridegroom come?
If he comes without delay
Will he find you in dismay,
Pleading for a chance to pray,
If he comes? [Refrain]

3 Are you ready should the Bridegroom come?
Are you ready should the Bridegroom come?
Will you hear him at the door,
Saying “Time shall be no more,
Your probation now is o’er,”
If he comes? [Refrain]

4 Are you ready should the Bridegroom come?
Are you ready should the Bridegroom come?
If you’re not prepared to go
You will sink to endless woe,
Be forever lost, you know,
If he comes. [Refrain]
