I Wish We'd All Been Ready by DC Talk

© 1969. Written by Larry Norman, Produced by DC Talk


Life was filled with guns and war
And all of us got trampled on the floor
I wish we'd all been ready

The children died, the days grew cold
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish we'd all been ready

There's no time to change your mind
The Son has come and you've been left behind

A man and wife asleep in bed
She hears a noise and turns her head he's gone
I wish we'd all been ready

Two men walking up a hill
One disappears and one's left standing still
I wish we'd all been ready

The Father spoke, the demons dined
How could you have been so blind?

I hope we'll all be ready
You've been left behind
