Who Is Ready?

Representative Text

1 Who is ready, who is willing.
To acknowledge Christ the Lord,
And accept the terms of pardon,
Offered in His Holy Word.

Do not wait another moment,
Now begin your life anew,
O remember, O remember,
Time will never wait for you.

2 Who is ready, who is willing,
Humbly, truly to believe,
That by simple faith in Jesus,
His forgiveness will receive.

3 Who is ready, who is willing,
In the ranks of truth to stand,
Who will bear the Gospel Banner,
With a bold and fearless hand. [Chorus]

4 Is there one among our number,
Ready, willing now to say,
I would like to find the Saviour,
Come at once, without delay. [Chorus]
