Are you in the roy­al ar­my?
Are you rea­dy for the coming of the Lord?
Are you march­ing on to meet Him?
Are you rea­dy for the com­ing of the Lord?

He is com­ing, He is coming;
He is com­ing to take us home;
Are you rea­dy, are you rea­dy,
Are you rea­dy for the com­ing of the Lord?

Are your lamps all trimmed and burn­ing?
Are you rea­dy for the com­ing of the Lord?
Have you on the wed­ding garments?
Are you rea­dy for the com­ing of the Lord?

Are you sanc­ti­fied and ho­ly?
Are you rea­dy for the com­ing of the Lord?
Do you live for Je­sus on­ly?
Are you rea­dy for the com­ing of the Lord?
