Representative Text

Refrain:
Better be ready; Better be ready;
Better be ready; Ready to try on your long white robe!

1 Oh! Rise up children, get your crown,
And by your Savior’s side sit down. [Refrain]

2 What a glorious morning that will be,
Our friends and Jesus we shall see. [Refrain]

3 O shout you Christians, you’re gaining ground,
We’ll shout old Satan’s kingdom down! [Refrain]

4 I soon shall reach that golden shore,
And sing the songs we sang before. [Refrain]
