Be Ready When He Comes

Representative Text

1 Would you flee from sin and serve the Lord?
Be ready when He comes;
He will soon appear with His reward,
Be ready when He comes.

Refrain:
Be ready, be ready,
Be ready when He comes;
Be ready, be ready,
Be ready when He comes.

2 It is not His will that you be lost,
Be ready when He comes;
Would you save your soul at any cost?
Be ready when He comes. [Refrain]

3 Do you know the end of time is near?
Be ready when He comes;
Can you live and die in sin’s career?
Be ready when He comes. [Refrain]

4 There is awful danger in delay,
Be ready when He comes;
Will you cast your only hope away?
Be ready when He comes. [Refrain]
