Are You Ready For Love?


by


John Henry Wheeler



When I woke up this morning,
I heard the newsmen scream:
"Peace in our time is coming!"
I thought it was a dream!
Maybe I'm wrong; maybe I'm crazy;
I've heard it all before!
When people are talking of peace and safety,
It's time to get ready for war!

When I walked out this morning,
I saw the headlines read:
"Peace in our time is finished!
The world is gonna bleed!"
Maybe I'm wrong -- but the world is crazy;
There must be something more!
I've been running around with no keys in my pockets;
Is there an open door?

Are you ready to make a new start?
Are you ready for a change in your heart?
Hey, are you ready for the light from above?
Hey, are you ready? Hey, are you ready?
Are you ready for love?

When I woke up this morning,
I heard the preacher plead:
"Peace in your heart is coming!
Just say that you believe!"
Maybe I'm wrong -- but they're all crazy;
Belief won't feed the poor!
But when you have everything but faith inside you,
Well then, who's starving more?

[Repeat chorus]

Someone tell me who's turned on
The lights inside my head!
It's really not that hard, not now
That my old life is dead!
Someone has come to live in me;
He died once in my stead!
For the first time in years I can sleep without fears
In peace upon my bed!

Are you ready to make a new start?
Are you ready for a change in your heart?
Hey, are you ready for the light from above?
Hey, are you ready? Hey, are you ready?
Are you ready for love?

Are you ready to make a new start?
(Look, here He comes! -- Hear the thunder in the sky!)
Are you ready for a change in your heart?
(Look, here He comes! -- Hear the thunder in the sky!)
Are you ready for the light from above?
(Look, here He comes! -- Hear the thunder in the sky!)
Are you ready for the Savior of love?
(Look, here He comes! -- Hear the thunder in the sky!)
