Hymn/Song Information

Be ready tarry not Vain pleasures to enjoy




Be ready! tarry not
Vain pleasures to enjoy;
Far greater pleasures can be bought
Without one earthly toy.


The tender cord of life
Will soon be rent in twain;
So now, anew begin the strife,
The better home to gain.


Be ready! none are free
From th’ artful tempter’s snare;
But often to your closet flee,
And there engage in prayer.


The contest with that foe
Will not forever last;
Then onward press, and seek to know,
On whom your care to cast.


Be ready! ye who wait
For Zion’s Lord and King;
Though now you pass through trials great;
He will deliverance bring.


And when the trump shall sound,
The sainted dead arise,
Oh, may we all with Christ be found,
And each receive the prize.
