1 There’s a wedding feast preparing
For the saved of all mankind;
All the wedding garment wearing,
Will a hearty welcome find.

For the Bridegroom asks you,
And the Bridegroom asks me,
To put on the wedding garment,
For the royal feast prepare;
There’s a welcome for you,
And a welcome for me,
The invitation I’ve accepted I’ll be there.

2 Not a soul on earth is slighted;
“Whosoever will,” said He;
I’m so glad that He invited
An unworthy guest like me. [Refrain]

3 O be ready for the warning
That may come by night or day;
If at midnight or at morning,
Do you loiter on the way. [Refrain]

4 Keep your faith-light calm and steady,
Never doubt the promise made,
But be ever, always ready,
In your wedding robe arrayed. [Refrain]
