Chorus:
Get right, stay right,
Be ready when my Jesus comes;
Get right, stay right,
Be ready when my Jesus comes,
Get right, stay right,
Be ready when my Jesus comes;
Get right, stay right,
Be ready when my Jesus comes.

1 I want to go to heaven, and I want to go right,
Be ready when my Jesus comes;
I want to go to heaven all dressed in white,
Be ready when my Jesus comes. [Chorus]

2 I haven't been to heaven, but I've been told,
Be ready when my Jesus comes;
That the gates are pearl and the streets are gold,
Be ready when my Jesus comes. [Chorus]

3 I looked over yonder, and did I see,
Be ready when my Jesus comes;
A band of angels coming after me,
Be ready when my Jesus comes. [Chorus]

4 When I get to heav'n going to shout all about,
Be ready when my Jesus comes;
And none of them angels can order me out,
Be ready when my Jesus comes. [Chorus]
