Are you ready

Full Text

1 Soon the evening shadows falling
Close the day of mortal life:
Soon the hand of death appalling
Draws thee from its weary strife.

Are you ready?
Are you ready?
'Tis the Spirit calling, why delay?
Are you ready?
Are you ready?
Do not linger longer, come to-day.

2 Soon the awful trumpet sounding
Calls thee to the judgment throne;
Now prepare, for love abounding
Yet has left thee not alone. [Refrain]

3 O how fatal 'tis to linger!
Are you ready—ready now?
Ready, should death's icy finger
Lay its chill upon thy brow? [Refrain]

4 Priceless love and free salvation
Freely still are offered thee;
Yield no longer to temptation,
But from sin and sorrow flee. [Refrain]
