Oh Come Angel Band

Thanks for reminding me of this one Cousin Phyllis.....
My mother and her brother and sister sung this song so pretty...

Oh Come Angel Band

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 snowy wings

    To my eternal home;

    Oh, bear me away on your snowy wings

    To my eternal home.

I know I’m near the holy ranks

Of friends and kindred dear—

I hear the waves on Jordan’s banks,

The crossing must be near.

I’ve almost reached my heav’nly home,

My spirit loudly sings;

Thy holy ones, behold, they come!

I hear the noise of wings.

Oh, bear my longing heart to Him,

Who bled and died for me;

Whose blood now cleanses from all sin,

And gives me victory.

Big Smile on My face...... Miss you momma!
