Jim Hamill – Gettin’ Ready to Leave This World [Live]

1. Laying up my treasures in that home above
Trusting, fully trusting in the Savior’s love;
Doing what I can for heaven’s Holy Dove
I’m a getting ready to leave this world.
CHORUS:

I’m getting ready to leave this world,
(I’m a getting ready to leave this world of sorrow)
Getting ready for gates of pearl;
(I’m a getting ready for the gates of pearl)
Keeping (my record bright)
Watching, (both day and night)
I’m getting ready to leave this world.
(I’m a getting ready to leave this sinful world)

2. Trusting in the riches of His saving grace,
In each earthly trial I His love can trace.
Sure that up in heaven I shall find a place,
I’m a getting ready to leave this world.

CHORUS:

3. To prepare a mansion, Jesus said, “I’ll go,
If it were not true I would have told you so,”
Just a little while to linger here below,
I’m a geting ready to leave this world.
