Lyrics
I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready, Lord
To walk into Jerusalem, just like John

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready, Lord
To walk into Jerusalem, just like John

Oh, John, oh John, oh what did you say
Walking in Jerusalem, just like John
I'll meet you there on the crowning day
Walking in Jerusalem, just like John

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready, Lord
To walk into Jerusalem, just like John

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready, Lord
To walk into Jerusalem, just like John

Oh, some comes cripple and some comes lame
Walking in Jerusalem, just like John
Some comes walking in Jesus' name
Walking in Jerusalem, just like John

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready, Lord
To walk into Jerusalem, just like John

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready, Lord
To walk into Jerusalem, just like John

Old Judas rested upon his shoulder
Walking in Jerusalem, just like John
I'll meet you there at the first crossover
Walking in Jerusalem, just like John

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready, Lord
To walk into Jerusalem, just like John

I want to be ready
I want to be ready
I want to be ready, Lord
To walk into Jerusalem, just like John
