Subject: Lyr Req: ?Ready to Leave?
From: wysiwyg

I have an .mps I transcribed.... might have made it via YouTube but I didn't name the artist ion the filename, and I can't find the video now (or maybe I got it off the teevee).

Here's some of it:

1. Some folks are building hopes down here and planning ahead,
So busy with their fortunes they forgot what Jesus said
About the wars and earthquakes and the ??????
But there's a group of people getting ready to leave.

CHO:
Ready to leave in the twinkling of an eye,
Making investments in the bank up in the sky.
Active preparation's not a reason to grieve--
Are you in that number getting ready to leave?

2. Sinner what's the reason for your needless delay?
While you're hesitatin' Christ could come just any day.
Heed the Spirit's call and make your way to Calvary,
And get in that number getting ready to leave.

====

Who dat? Origin?

Some folks are building hopes down here and planning ahead
so busy with their fortunes, they forgot what Jesus said:
about the wars and earthquakes and the fig tree's budding leaves.
But there's a group of people getting ready to leave!

CHORUS: Ready to leave in a twinkling of an eye,
making investments in the bank up in the sky!
I've made preparations – not a reason to grieve.
Are you in that number getting ready to leave?

Sinner, what's the reason for your needless delay?
While you're hesitating, Christ could come just any day!
Heed the Spirit's calling, make your way to Calvary,
and get in that number getting ready to leave!

Go to this page and you will hear READY TO LEAVE play automatically. A small note at the bottom says the recording is by "Happy Goodmans." (Is that an individual or a group?)
