It’s Time To Get Ready

Mark 1.1-12

….poem and rap ~ following the Theme of yesterday's ‘Advent’ all-age workshop…

There was a man called John

Who came to say

"Repent you sinners..

On your knees and pray!

Be baptized, you better do it today

Cos the Lord's gonna come…

PREPARE THE WAY! "

Cos' it's time to get ready:

It's time to get ready:

it's time to get ready:

It's time to get ready,

He's comin' this way!

"So stop being greedy

share what you've got,

Don't lie or cheat..

Be satisfied with your lot.

The One who is coming

is greater than I

The thongs of his sandals

I'm not fit to untie.

it's time to get ready:

It's time to get ready:

it's time to get ready:

It's time to get ready:

He's coming this way

Long ago, Mary

by an angel was told

She would have God's Son

And she'd have to be bold

Elizabeth, her cousin exclaimed with glee

"Oh blessed are you and blessed are we!"

It's time to get ready:

It's time to get ready:

it's time to get ready:

It's time to get ready:

He's comin this way!

So sinner man

It's time to prepare

Wake from your sleep,

Cos' fool if you dare…

To sleep though it all

Without no prayer

You'll be pleading with your maker,

Sayin' "It's not fair!"

It's time to get ready :It’s time to get ready

It's time to get ready: it's time to get ready:
