Verse 1
When Jesus comes to reward His servants,
Whether it be noon or night,
Faithful to Him, will He find us watching,
With our lamps all trimmed and bright?

Chorus
O can we say we are ready, brother,
Ready for the soul's bright home?
Say, will He find you and me still watching,
Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?

Verse 2
If, at the dawn of the early morning,
He shall call us one by one,
When to the Lord we restore our talents,
Will He answer thee ? Well done?

Chorus
O can we say we are ready, brother,
Ready for the soul's bright home?
Say, will He find you and me still watching,
Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?

Verse 3
Have we been true to the trust He left us?
Do we seek to do our best?
If in our hearts there in naught condemns us,
We shall have a glorious rest.

Chorus
O can we say we are ready, brother,
Ready for the soul's bright home?
Say, will He find you and me still watching,
Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?

Verse 4
Blessed are those whom the Lord finds watching,
In His glory they shall share;
If He shall come at the dawn or midnight,
Will He find us watching there?

Chorus
O can we say we are ready, brother,
Ready for the soul's bright home?
Say, will He find you and me still watching,
Waiting, waiting when the Lord shall come?
