Angel Band
Rev. J. Haskell, arr by J.D.V.

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,
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 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.


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


Here is a recording of Angel Band by Cynthia Clawson from her CD, River of Memories, Chapel 3306, 1994. Normally I would encourage you to buy the album if you like the song, but so far, I have been unable to find it for sale anywhere ~~ maybe it would be available from a Christian Bookstore.
