Angel Band


My latest sun is sinking fast, my race is nearly run.
My strongest trials now are past, my triumph has begun.

Oh come angel band, come and around me stand.
Oh bear me away on your snow white wings to my immortal home,
Oh bear me away on your snow white wings to my immortal home.


Oh bear my longing heart to him who bled and died for me,
Whose blood now cleanses from all sins and gives me victory.

I know I'm near the holy ranks of friends and kindred dear.
I brush the dew on Jordan's banks, the crossing must be near.

I've almost gained my heavenly home, my spirit loudly sings.
The holy ones, behold they come, I hear the noise of wings.
