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

Representative Text

1. We’re told in the Bible that Jesus is coming,
Be ready to go, be ready to go!
When He shall descend from the portals of glory,
Be ready to go, be ready to go!

Refrain
Be ready to go, for sure He is coming!
That day may be near, be ready to go,
Be ready to go with all the redeemed ones!
When He shall appear, be ready to go!

2. Then stand you no longer in idleness, brother,
Be ready to go, be ready to go!
Be watching and waiting His coming to welcome,
Be ready to go, be ready to go! [Refrain]

3. We know not the day nor the hour of His coming,
Be ready to go, be ready to go!
Reward He has promised to all who are faithful,
Be ready to go, be ready to go! [Refrain]

4. Would you with the millions redeemed there be numbered?
Be ready to go, be ready to go!
Then slight not His call, nor reject thou His mercy,
Be ready to go, be ready to go! [Refrain]
