Well, let me tell you I'm ready to go, I'm ready to go on home.
Because the things of this old world mean nothing to me.
I'm gonna walk on the streets of gold in a land where we'll never grow old.
I'm ready for God to take me on home.
2. Every time I read the newspaper things look pretty grim.
There's all kinds of wars and rumors for more. When will it all end?
But I'm not worried and I'm not afraid 'cause I know where I'm going.
In the twinkling of an eye He'll split the Eastern sky, and take us to the Promised Land.
CHORUS: twice, tag last line at the end.
