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

1. Are you walking now in the light of God?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
Are you in the path that the Master trod?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.

Refrain
Will you be ready to enter in?
Ready when the Bridegroom comes?
In the morning light, or at noon, or night,
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.

2. Have you full salvation from every sin?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
Trusting in His Word, have you peace within?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes. [Refrain]

3. Is your heart made clean by the precious blood?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
Have you been made white in the cleansing flood?
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes. [Refrain]

4. He will come some day unto every soul;
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
By His healing power let Him make you whole—
Be ready when the Bridegroom comes.[Refrain]
