Yolanda Adams - I'm Gonna Be Ready Lyrics



I say a prayer every night, whatever I do, I'll get it right
With no regret, no guilt or shame this time, no not this time
Once I surrender, I won't dare look back, cause if I do, I'll get off track
Move ahead in faith, and patiently await your answer, what will it be

[Chorus:]
Sight beyond what I see
You know what's best for me
Prepare my mind, prepare my heart
For whatever comes, I'm gone' be ready

Strength to pass any test
I feel like I'm so blessed
With you in control, I can't go wrong
'Cause I always know, I'm gonna be ready

I was free to do, what I wanted to, lost everything, but I still had you
You showed me your grace, now my life's renewed and I thank you, yes.. I thank
You
So I'll tell anyone who'll listen, I'll testify
About how good you were to me, when so call friends passed me by
The fact that you would show somebody so broke down, so-much-merccccyyy...

[Chorus:]
Sight beyond what I see BEYOND WHAT I SEE
You know what's best I KNOW YOU KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR ME
Prepare my mind...PREPARE MY MIND AND PREPARE MY HEART
For whatever comes...FOR WHATEVER COMES I GONNA BE READY

Strength to pass any test GIVE ME THE STRENGTH TO PASS ANY TEST
I feel like I'm so blessed I KNOW THAT I'M SO BLESSED
With you in control...YOUR IN CONTROL LORD, CAN'T GO WRONG NO
'Cause I always know...CAUSE I KNOW THAT I'M GONNA BE READY

So use me as you will, I'll pay the price
'Cause you made the ultimate sacrifice
It's all because of you, that I even have life
And I'll give my love, as a tribute, to how great you are...

[Chorus:]
Sight beyond what I see BEYOND WHAT I SEE
You know what's best I KNOW YOU KNOW WHAT'S BEST FOR ME OHH OOHH
Prepare my mind...PREPARE MY HEART AND PREPARE MY MIND
For whatever ...FOR WHATEVER COMES I GONNA BE READY YEAH YEAH YEAH

Strength to pass any test I WANNA PASS THIS TEST
I feel like...I KNOW THAT I AM, KNOW THAT I AM, KNOW THAT I'M SO BLESSED
With you in...YOU'RE IN CONTROL OF MY LIFE LORD, I CAN'T GO WRONG NO
'Cause I always know...AND I KNOW IT I'M GONNA BE I'M GONNA BE READY

I'm gonna be ready THIS TIME I'M GONNA BE
I'm gonna be ready CAUSE YOU LIVE DEEP INSIDE OF ME
I'm gonna be ready AND I KNOW IT'S IN YOUR WILL FOR ME TO BE READY
YEAH YEAH YEAH UUUHHHHH
I'M GONNA BE READY

  21. marcel jackson

    I SURRENDER GOD

  22. NetanYahu Israel

    You ought to be ashamed of yourself the way you dress I don't know if you're promoting gospel or r&b

    We are Israel you black Hispanic and native American we are not heathens that is not how The Most High charge our women to dress what will it prophet to gain the whole world my sister

    1 Timothy 2:9-14
    [9]In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
    [10]But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
    [11]Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
    [12]But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
    [13]For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
    [14]And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.

    Let this a lesson to you daughter of Israel y'all are princess's not harlots

    Keeping his laws is the only way to the kingdom
    Revelation 22:11-14
    [11]He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
    [12]And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
    [13]I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
    [14]Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

  34. Victorious_Warrior God Got Me

    I was playing praise and worship when I heard this song. I started to cry uncontrollably because this song gave me some understanding to my storm. I was so broken😥😥, I didn't understand how I got here. Being a Victim of Domestic, was shot 5x by my ex-boyfriend point bank range. I walked over to the cop for assistance because he was too frozen to assist me. When I look back at the video of my shooting, I know God took over my battle, he didn't leave me on the battle field alone. I wasn't suppose to be here to tell my story today. It was only his Grace and Mercy that saved my life. I still have my dark days but, I wont look back I know God is by my side. I'm so blessed🙏 Thank You!!!!😘
