People all over the world are making preparations
Some are making plans for wedding celebrations
Some are making plans to move to a new location
And some are making plans for a special vacation

Young couples are preparing for their first child's birth
Farmers are preparing to plant seeds in the fresh earth
Soldiers are packing and preparing to go off to battle
Ranchers are preparing hay to feed their hungry cattle

Teachers prepare their lesson plans for the school year
Students prepare for school with new clothes and gear
Athletes prepare and plan for opening ball game day
Parents prepare their budgets so the bills they can pay

Making plans and preparations are a part of this life
The band is preparing to march to the sound of the fife
As your journey on earth unfolds from day to day
I hope you made some plans to kneel and to pray

I would like to ask you a very deep question
Have you made plans for your last preparation?
Put some thought in your answer to me
What will be your final destination be?
