I Want To Be Ready

This song is by Ben Harper and appears on the album The Will to Live (1997) and on the album Live at the Apollo (2005).

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, turn 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
And 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
Ah, 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
