1 When the Lord shall call for His waiting bride,
Will you be ready? Will you be ready?
Has your robe been washed in the cleansing tide?
Will you be ready to meet the Lord?

Refrain:
Will you be ready, Will you be ready,
When the Lord shall take His loved ones home?
Will you be ready, Will you be ready,
Will you be ready when the Lord shall come?

2 Like a thief at night He will surely come,
Will you be ready? Will you be ready?
When He gathers all of His faithful home,
Will you be ready to meet the Lord? [Refrain]

3 On the last great day when the trump shall sound,
Will you be ready? Will you be ready?
In a robe of white will your soul be found,
Will you be ready to meet the Lord? [Refrain]

4 If your lamp is trimmed, if it’s burning bright,
You will be ready! You will be ready;
If you daily walk in the path of right,
You will be ready to meet the Lord! [Refrain]
