Representative Text

1 O, to be robed and ready,
Ready when the Lord shall come;
O, to be waiting, watching,
Watching for the summons home.

Refrain:
O, to be ready, O, to be waiting,
Waiting for the Lord to come;
O, to be waiting, watching,
Watching for the summons home.

2 O, to be robed and ready,
Ready for the call to go;
Washed in the crimson fountain,
Till ev’ry stain is white as snow. [Refrain]

3 O, to be robed and ready,
Ready, for it may be near;
When in a cloud of glory
Blessed Jesus shall appear. [Refrain]

4 O, to be robed and ready,
Ready for eternal rest;
Ready to join the ransomed
In the city of the blest. [Refrain]
