Angel Band lyrics
My latest sun is sinking fast My race is nearly run My longest 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 you 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 sin And gives me victory Oh come angel band Come and around me stand Bear me away on your snow white wings To my immortal home Bear me away on you snow white wings To my immortal home
