Getting Ready for Glory – Music and Lyric by Carolyn Arends

 

She’s had eighty some years
Most of them good
But she’s not gonna be here much longer
And the body gets weak
As she knew that it would
But the spirit just keeps getting stronger
She’s got her Bible and hymn book beside her
She’s storing those psalms and old songs up inside her
She’s getting ready
She’s getting ready
She’s getting ready for glory
She’s getting ready
She’s getting ready
She’s getting ready for glory

She knows all of the verses
To how great thou art
And the spirit doth magnify often
And she’s gonna keep learnin’
The scriptures by heart
’till the day that she’s laid in her coffin
She wants to be sure when the angels come take her
That she’s got some greetings for meeting her maker

And she will tell us
If we’ll only listen
It’s not about dyin’
It’s all about livin’
And whether we’re young
Or the end’s drawing near
There’s just one reason why God has us here

We’re getting ready…
