5MC ~~ Ready

I’m getting READY to leave this world,

I’m getting READY for the gates of pearl,

Keeping my record bright,

Watching both day and night,

I’m getting READY to leave this world.

1. Laying up my treasures in that home above
Trusting, fully trusting in the Savior’s love;
Doing what I can for heaven’s Holy Dove
I’m a getting ready to leave this world.

2. Trusting in the riches of His saving grace,
In each earthly trial I His love can trace.
Sure that up in heaven I shall find a place,
I’m a getting ready to leave this world.

3. To prepare a mansion, Jesus said, “I’ll go,
If it were not true I would have told you so,”
Just a little while to linger here below,
I’m a getting ready to leave this world.

This is an old song we used to sing when I was a child going to church.  I don’t know who wrote the words but I always loved it.

It reminded me that this world is not my ‘home’.  That my place is with Jesus whenever He deems that necessary.  And I am READY!
