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]
