Full Text

Refrain:
I want to be ready,
I want to be ready,
I want to be ready
to walk in Jerusalem just like John.

1 O John, O John, what did you say?
Walk in Jerusalem just like John!
That you'd be there on judgment day.
Walk in Jerusalem just like John!
(Refrain)

2 John said the city was just foursquare.
Walk in Jerusalem just like John!
And he declared he'd meet me there.
Walk in Jerusalem just like John.
(Refrain)

3 Now sinners, mind how you step on the cross.
Walk in Jerusalem just like John!
Your foot might slip and your soul get lost.
Walk in Jerusalem just like John!
(Refrain)
