When Jesus Shall Come Again By And By


When Jesus shall come again by and by,
I’ll be ready to go;
He’s promised to gather His saints in the sky,
I’ll be ready to go.

Refrain:
I’ll be ready, I’ll be ready,
I’ll be ready to go;
I’ll be ready, I’ll be ready,
I’ll be ready to go.

No matter what day or what hour it shall be,
I’ll be ready to go;
The signs of His coming I’m watching to see,
I’ll be ready to go. [Refrain]

Should He come in the morning, or the noon-day,
I’ll be ready to go;
Or late in the eve as the light fades away,
I’ll be ready to go. [Refrain]

E’en should the Lord tarry till midnight so late,
I’ll be ready to go;
With lamp trimmed and burning will patiently wait,
I’ll be ready to go. [Refrain]

I long for His coming, I sigh for sweet rest,
I’ll be ready to go;
He’ll take me to heaven, the home of the blest,
I’ll be ready to go. [Refrain]
