1 O ’tis sweet to sing this story,
I’ll be ready when He comes;
It to tell is all my glory,
I’ll be ready when He comes.

Refrain:
I’ll be ready when He comes,
I’ll be ready when He comes;
O ’tis sweet to sing this story,
I’ll be ready when He comes.

2 All I am to Him I’m giving,
I’ll be ready when He comes;
Day by day for Him I’m living,
I’ll be ready when He comes. [Refrain]

3 Striving on, His will obeying,
I’ll be ready when He comes;
Working, watching, ever praying,
I’ll be ready when He comes. [Refrain]

4 Sinners there in darkness straying,
O be ready when He comes;
Do not farther risk delaying,
But be ready when He comes. [Refrain]
