Proverbs 3:5-6

Getting Ready to Go Bar

Getting Ready to Go

There were two handwritten versions of this song.
I have placed each line side by side so that viewers can compare them.

I'm going to leave this country I'm going to leave this country
Got nothing here to hold meGot nothing here to hold me
Don't want to settle downDon't want to settle down
I brought nothing with meI brought nothing here with me
Nothing to take awayGot nothing to take away
What I found in this world,What I found in this old world
I'm going to leave it stay,I'm going to leave it stay
Getting Ready to Go ButtonGetting Ready to Go Button
For I've got a great big mansionFor I've got a great big mansion
I've got a place to goIn a place I've got to go
Where I'm going to live foreverWhere I'm going to live forever
Got a Lord that tells me soGot a Lord that tells me so
I've got to see that mansionNow I've got to see that mansion
Hear the angels singing roundJoin the angels singing round
The great white throne of gloryThat great white throne in glory
Got to wear that robe and crownGot to wear my robe and crown
Getting Ready to Go ButtonGetting Ready to Go Button
I'm going to take a journeyNow when I take this journey
I'm going to go to stay,I'll go there to stay
When I leave this countryGladly leave this country
For that land that's far away,For that land that's far away
Getting tired of travelingI am so tired of traveling
Of running to and fro,Of running to and fro
Got to get ready for JesusI know the Lord is coming
Just got to be ready to go,And I must be ready to go
Getting Ready to Go ButtonGetting Ready to Go Button
Got nothing here to hold meGot nothing here to hold me
Don't have long to stay,No longer care to stay
Got that bye-bye feeling thatJust living for that moment
I want to go away,When my Lord calls me away
Now I've got to get readyNow is the time to be ready
Won't do to hold the line,For He will not hold the line
Just fall in step with JesusI must fall in step with Jesus
Just got to be ready on time,And I must be ready on time
Getting Ready to Go ButtonGetting Ready to Go Button
I've got to quit this worryingNo more time for worrying
Got to quit feeling blue,No time for feeling blue
Got to keep on believing,Just keep on believing
Got to keep praying to,I'm keeping on praying, too
Now I've got to get in a hurry,Time is short; so I must hurry
'Twill never do to be late,This journey will not wait
Got to be ready to travel,I'll be traveling on with Jesus
On that trip to the pearly gate,On that trip to the pearly gates
Getting Ready to Go ButtonGetting Ready to Go Button
Got to see the gate swing open,Now when the gate swings open
Got to be so near,I want to be so near
Got to hear when they call me,I can hear them when they call me
Got to answer, "I am here."And can answer I am here
Got to know I made it safely,Got to know I made it safely
Got to know I paid the toll,And that I have paid the toll
Got to see the book laid open,When the book of life is opened
Got to see my name on the roll,

To see my name upon the roll
