I’ll be ready to go when the Bridegroom comes,
I’ll be ready to go when the Bridegroom comes;
I am cleansed from every sin,
Have the life of Christ within;
I’ll be ready for the end,
When He comes.

Refrain

I’ll be ready when the Bridegroom comes,
I’ll be ready when the Bridegroom comes.
Be it noon or be it night,
I’ll be robed in spotless white,
Have my lamp all burning bright,
When He comes.

Refrain

I’ll be ready to go when the Bridegroom comes,
I’ll be ready to go when the Bridegroom comes;
On the final judgment day,
I’ll be robed in bright array,
And go home with Him to stay,
When He comes.

Refrain

I’ll be ready to go when the Bridegroom comes,
I’ll be ready to go when the Bridegroom comes;
Soon I’ll see my Savior’s face,
Learn His love for human race,
How my soul was saved by grace,
When He comes.

Refrain

I’ll be ready to go when the Bridegroom comes,
I’ll be ready to go when the Bridegroom comes;
I’ll be watching for my Lord,
I’ll be anchored on His Word,
Waiting then to be transferred,
When He comes.

Refrain
