Angel Band: Christian Hymn Lyrics


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

O come, angel band, come, and around me stand,
O bear me away on your snowy wings to my immortal home.
O bear me away on your snowy wings to my immortal home.

I know I'm nearing holy ranks of friends and kindred dear.
I brush the dew of 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.

O bear my longing heart to Him who bled and died for me.
Whose blood now cleanses from all sin, and gives me victory.
