I Want To Be Ready

The first day of my life - The day that I was born - God said He was watching over me 

He said He had a plan to make my life complete and prepare me for eternity

 

There’s nothing I can do to deserve His love and the kindness He has shown to me

But I can live each day with a grateful heart – And be ready for eternity

 

The years have come and gone and here I am today on the doorstep of eternity

But I am not afraid of what the future holds, God said He is watching over me 

 

 Chorus

 I want to be ready when He calls my name

 And I go to stand before His throne

 I want to be ready to see Him face-to-face

 And to hear Him say to me “Well done.”

I get to go to heaven - I get to hear the angels sing

I get to walk on streets of gold - I get to see the King
