I Want To Be Ready Lyrics

by Ben Harper

How I am strong
Is to know what
Makes me weak
How I am found
Is to know just whom I seek
The gift of a blessing
The burden of a sin
Oh, turn to him, to him

I wanna be ready
I wanna be ready
I wanna be ready
Ready to put on
My long white robe

Nailed across
From hand to hand
For the sin
Of every woman and man
All upon his earth
Is all within his plan
And I know this shall be
My journey home

I wanna be ready
I wanna be ready
I wanna be ready
Ready to put on
My long white robe

Ready
I wanna be ready
I wanna be ready
Ready to put on
My long white robe

Covet no silver
Oh, covet no gold
Reach your empty
Hands for him to hold
Up in his kingdom
Glory shall be proclaimed
Oh, sing the song
And praise his name

I wanna be ready
I wanna be ready
I wanna be ready
Ready to put on
My long white robe

Ready
I want to be ready
I wanna be ready
Ready to put on
My long white robe

Ready
I wanna be ready
I wanna be ready
Ready to put on
My long white robe
