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.

Representative Text

1 Jesus is ready, is ready to save;
‘Twas for poor sinners, His life-blood He gave;
Hark, His sweet voice is now calling anew!
What is your answer? He’s ready. Are you?

Jesus is ready, are you, are you?
He’s able and willing, ‘tis true, ‘tis true;
His life-blood He gave to be “mighty to save,”
Jesus is ready, are you?

2 Jesus is ready to pardon your sin,
Wondrously heal you, and cleanse you within;
Can you not trust Him? He’s faithful and true,
Full of compassion; He’s ready. Are you? [Refrain]

3 Jesus is ready to help you today,
Turning your feet to the heavenward way;
Goodness and mercy your steps shall pursue;
Able to keep you; He’s ready. Are you? [Refrain]

4 Jesus is ready the burden to lift,
Waiting to bless you with ev’ry good gift;
Coming to Calv’ry, O, will you not say,
“Jesus, I’m ready, O, save me today?” [Refrain]
