Lord I'm Ready to Go
Traveling [A] on this rugged road thinkin' of [D] things of long [A] ago,
How our Saviour suffered and died on [E] Calvary.
They nailed His [A] hands and pierced His side,
On the [D] cross He bled and [A] died,
Just to save us all from [E] sin and set us [A] free.
Lord I'm gettin' [A] ready (Lord I'm gettin' ready),
Now to go (now to go).
To heaven above (to heaven above),
From here [E] below (from here below).
When I [A] reach that Promised Land I'm a gonna [D] shake my Saviour's [A] hand.
Oh Lord I'm gettin' ready (Lord I'm gettin' ready),
[E ] Now to [A] go (now to go).
Our Lord is coming back some day and we've got to watch and pray,
And be ready to meet our Saviour face to face.
If we know we've been redeemed,
Then we know our soul is clean,
And we have a home within His saving grace.
Now to go.
