"I Want To Be Ready" as written by and Ben Harper....
How I am strong
Is to know what makes me weak
How I am found
Is to know just whom I seek
The gift of a blessing
The burden of a sin
Turn to him

I want to be ready
Ready to put on
My long white robe

Nailed across
From hand to hand
For the sin
Of woman and man
All upon his earth
Is all within his plan
And I know this shall be
My journey home

I want to be ready
Ready to put on
My long white robe

Covet no silver
Covet no gold
Reach your empty
Hands for him to hold
Up in his kingdom
Glory shall be proclaimed
Sing the song
And praise his name.

    General CommentThis song is taken from the book of Revelation in the bible.

    "And there was given them to each one a white robe; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little time, until their fellow-servants also and their brethren, who should be killed even as they were, should have fulfilled their course." Revelation 6:11

    It simply talking about how the righteous believers or born again chrisitan will get their white robes upon entrance into the kingdom of God. This song is abou the after life. Pretty obvious Ben is not an atheiest with songs like this.

    I have white robe reserved too!
