During our last fund drive one donor said this: "I love hymns ... If you asked for money, it means you need it! Please keep the work going. And please, accept my widow's mite. God bless you."

She was right. We only ask for money twice a year, and we do so because we need it.

Representative Text

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]
