1 I know not how soon God will bid me to come,
I’ll try to be ready to go,
To share in the glory that waits me at home,
I’ll try to be ready to go.

Refrain:
I’ll try to be ready to go,
I’ll try to be ready to go;
Hi blood makes me whiter than snow,
I’ll try to be ready to go.

2 Tho’ trials may come, tho’ my riches forsake,
I’ll try to be ready to go,
When death overtakes me, in glory I’ll wake,
I’ll try to be ready to go. [Refrain]

3 How precious the promise reveal’d in his word,
I’ll try to be ready to go,
That we shall at last dwell together with God,
I’ll try to be ready to go. [Refrain]

4 The Spirit invites you to join in the fray,
I’ll try to be ready to go,
And help to bring in the millenial day,
I’ll try to be ready to go. [Refrain]
