Lyrics

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 sin and gives me victory 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 me away on your snow white wings to my immortal home
