    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?
