Barney E. Warren, in The Revival No. 4 (Atlanta, Georgia: Charlie D. Tillman, 1903), number 66 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Are you ready when the Bridegroom comes?
Are you ready when the Bridegroom comes?
If He comes at noon or night,
Will it fill you with delight,
Or will you deplore the sight, if He comes?

Refrain

If He comes, if He comes,
Are you ready, watching, waiting if He comes?
If He comes, if He comes,
Are you ready if the Bridegroom comes?

Are you ready when the Bridegroom comes?
Are you ready when the Bridegroom comes?
If He comes without delay,
Will He find you in dismay,
Pleading for a chance to pray, If He comes?

Refrain

Are you ready when the Bridegroom comes?
Are you ready when the Bridegroom comes?
You will hear Him at the door
Saying, Time shall be no more,
Your probation now is o’er,
if He comes.

Refrain

Are you ready when the Bridegroom comes?
Are you ready when the Bridegroom comes?
If you’re not prepared to go,
You will sink to endless woe,
Be forever lost, you know, if He comes.

Refrain
