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.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

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]
