"I Wish We'd All Been Ready" as written by and Larry Norman....
Life was filled with guns and war
And all of us got trampled on the floor
I wish we'd all been ready
Children died the days grew cold
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish we'd all been ready

There's no time to change your mind
The Son has come and you've been left behind

A man and wife asleep in bed
She hears a noise and turns her head he's gone
I wish we'd all been ready
Two men walking up a hill
One disappears and one's left standing still
I wish we'd all been ready

There's no time to change your mind
The Son has come and you've been left behind

Children died the days grew cold
A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish we'd all been ready

There's no time to change your mind
The Son has come and you've been left behind

The Father spoke the demons died
How could you have been so blind

There's no time to change your mind
The Son has come and you've been left behind

I hope we'll all be ready you've been left behind
I hope we'll all be ready you've been left behind
I hope we'll all be ready you've been left behind

    General CommentThis song is really good.We used this song for a play at christmas.
    This song is sad but it warns us that we can't go our own way,we have got to do it god's way. God has given us so much,can't we give him thanks and love and be good?All he asks of us is to follow him,love him,obey him.This song points out that if we don't we'll be left behind,and we'd wish we had done it gods way.So if anyone reads this please know that the time to do it gods way is now,becuz you never know when his son will come.Once again I say,this song is such a good song.
