Are You Ready words and music by Judy Daigle (c) 2020

I can’t sit idly by while there are people living out on the street.
I can’t just turn my head when many children don’t have enough food to eat.
In a nation full of excess, how is this allowed to be?
There is no reason we can’t fill this basic need.
Are you ready! Are you ready!

I will stand for the outcasts. I will speak for the meek.
I will offer a hand up to those who have a need?
I ask you to join me, this tide will lift us all.
Are you ready?
Are you ready to answer the call?

No one should be denied for who they love or the color of their skin.
Why do some people fear when they see someone different from them?
What if this was your brother, your daughter, or your son.
Put yourself in their shoes, you know what should be done.
Are you ready? Are you ready?


The bells of freedom ring. Lady Liberty sings
give me your tired and your poor.
We are all better when there is no us and them.
Come together and be the hope you’re looking for.
Are you ready? Are you ready?
