Are you ready for the coming
Oof the Lord from Heav’n?
Are you resting in the promise
Which to us is giv’n?
Does your heart leap up with rapture
As you know He’s near?
Or do thoughts of His appearing
Fill your heart with fear?

Refrain

Are you ready (are you ready),
Are you ready (are you ready),
Are you ready for the opening skies?
Are you ready (are you ready),
Are you ready (are you ready),
Are you ready for that glad surprise?

If He came to call His people
Would you be dismayed?
Though your sins have been forgiven
Would you be afraid?
Would you be ashamed to meet Him
If He came today?
From the presence of the Master
Would you shrink away?

Refrain

To this world with all its pleasures
Are you rooted fast?
Would a call to leave it quickly
Be a wrench at last?
When He views your finished life work
Will you suffer loss?
Will you find that you have gathered
Only worthless dross?

Refrain

Are you busy in His service
Though your heart is cold?
Are there precious earthly treasures
Which you fondly hold?
Would He find you doing only
What He could approve?
Would He find you watching, waiting
For the one you love?

Refrain
