Angel Band
My latest sun is sinking fast

 

 

My latest sun is sinking fast,
My race is nearly run.
My strongest trials now are past,
My triumph is begun.
Oh, come, Angel Band,
Come and around me stand.


Oh bear me away on your
Snowwhite wings to my immortal home,
Oh bear me away on your
Snowwhite wings to my immortal home.

 

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.
Oh, come, Angel Band,
Come and around me stand ...

 

I've almost gained my heavenly home,
My spirit loudly sings.
The holy ones, behold they come,
I hear the noise of wings.
Oh, come, Angel Band,
Come and around me stand ...

 

Oh bear my longing heart to him
Who bled and died for me.
Whose blood now cleanses from
All sin, and gives me victory.
Oh, come, Angel Band,
Come and around me stand ...
