A. C. Palmer


READY to go, ready to wait,

Ready a gap to fill;

Ready for service, small or great,

Ready to do His will.


Ready to suffer grief and pain,

Ready to stand the test;

Ready to stay at home and send

Others, if He see best.


Ready to do, ready to bear,

Ready to watch and pray;

Ready to stand aside and give

Till He shall clear the way.


Ready to speak, ready to think,

Ready with heart and brain;

Ready to start when He sees fit,

Ready to share the strain.


Ready to seek, ready to warn,

Ready o’er souls to yearn;

Ready in life, ready in death,

Ready for His return.
